Dinosaur National Park Challenge
Firstly we don’t think about whether getting out of a situation we worry about getting in, right? Learn more in Dinosaur-National-Park-Challenge-Bob Davis Podcast 1062.
Getting Out Can Be Tough
Secondly getting out of something is often way more challenging that getting in.
42 Miles of Dirt Road
US Park System
Above all don’t get me wrong. This is one of the oldest parks in the US Park System.
And it is one of the largest.
Echo Park Campground Is Amazing
Even more it features the Echo Park road and Campground, which are truly amazing.
But there’s more.
Most importantly the Petroglyphs of the Fremont People.
Campground At The Confluence Of Three Rivers
Finally I could go on for hours about the campground nestled in the rocks at the confluence of three rivers.
In addition there are at least two other campgrounds I now know of that might be more accessible.
Further did I mention there are Dinosaur bones there?
Two Great Days
Most importantly I spent two great days in the campground.
In the same vein I went on some great hikes and had some great meals.
Likewise I met some great people.
I was worried about getting out the way I got in.
Take The Beach Road!
No Climbing, She Said
In short it meant no climbing, she said.
To sum up this is where the adventure and challenge began.
[Editor’s Note: I keep calling it the ‘Beach’ Road, but it is in fact The Yampa Bench Road.]
Begin The Ordeal
Because getting out turned out to be quite an ordeal.
Certainly the rest of the details are in Dinosaur-National-Park-Challenge-Bob Davis Podcast 1062.
Oh I have Been On Bad Roads
I have certainly been on bad roads before.
A Certain Charm
But this one had a certain charm I will not soon forget.
As a result this podcast is the story of the adventure.
