I had considered that route, but I read somewhere that it was difficult. My guide book (if I recall correctly) rated it as more difficult than Saline Valley/Hunter Mountain, but given the comments on travelling in SV that have appeared on here when I asked a few weeks ago, I presumed it to be more difficult than I was comfortable with travelling on my own.
I'm looking for remote, quiet, scenic areas - somewhere to contemplate not a lot.
I've travelled in Utah, Canyonlands, Escalante, San Rafael Swell and really enjoy just making my own way towards nowhere specific.
While this is a great web site, it is difficult to relate some of the experiences discussed back to my own capabilities in a rental SUV. Many of you have uprated vehicles, travel in groups, years of experience etc. and clearly have a good time in the wilderness, to some extent "taking it on" by travelling to deliberately remote and difficult areas. Much as I'd love to do that I do respect the place and recognise my limitations.
Anyway enough rambling. Thanks for the advice I will reconsider that route, as it had been an early choice.
