Joshua Tree: High desert park draws climbers, nature lovers

March 22, 2010, 7:40 am
Vacations are not supposed to be painful. But here I am, on my third rock-climbing trip to Joshua Tree, the desert national park about an hour northeast of downtown Palm Springs. I stand at the foot of the 5.5-skill-level climb Wilson Regular Route, looking up at an impossibly tall rock ...

Oooh, hopefully this is a HYPOTHETICAL question!  We'll do some digging to see what we can find and get back to you... In the meantime, please note that OhRanger.com does not have doctors on staff.  We trust the folks at WedMD (see link below) but if you have a specific concern you should consult your personal physician. 

SCORPION BITE TREATMENT:

Remember, scorpion bites are usually avoidable!  If camping, or in any environment you have doubts about, don't put your fingers and toes where you can't see them.  Shake out shoes, gloves, sleeping bags and tents before entering!

Capitol Reef, Waterpocket Fold, Land of the Sleeping Rainbow—all are colorful names to describe a park with many striking characteristics.

Waterpocket Fold, the main feature of the park, is the name of a 100-mile-long fold in the earth's surface. This uplift contains innumerable eroded basins or pockets that hold thousands of gallons of rainwater. These pockets of water have affected the history of humanity within the park and the flora and fauna of the region.

Entering the park from the west gives the most impressive view of the 1,000-foot-high stone barrier into which erosive forces have sculpted fascinating canyons, mesas, buttes and mazes. Once in the park, other astonishing panoramas await you.

Within a short distance of the visitor center, you will see Capitol Dome, Chimney Rock, the Goosenecks and the Egyptian Temple. Hickman Bridge, the Golden Throne and Capitol Gorge reward you after easy to moderate hikes. Prehistoric petroglyphs, the Fruita Schoolhouse, the Gifford Farmhouse and the Behunin Cabin speak of bygone eras and can be reached by car. The 20-mile round-trip Scenic Drive will take you past the Ripple Rock Nature Center and many of the park's features.

If you are seeking a remote wilderness experience, Capitol Reef has it. To the north of Route 24, dirt roads, which generally require high-clearance or 4-wheel-drive vehicles, lead into the park's north end through the heart of Cathedral Valley, an area of monolithic formations of Entrada and Curtis sandstones, some of which are 500 feet high. South of Route 24, graded roads, usually suitable for high-clearance vehicles, lead into some very fine hiking country. Besides good hiking opportunities, the southern part of the park also offers spectacular views of the folded strata of Capitol Reef and the Henry Mountains. Muley Twist Canyon is in the southern end of the park, as is Brimhall Bridge. Check with a park ranger before setting out for any of these more remote locations. Weather conditions may make the roads slick and impassable.

I made a custom essay and I found that it is located on the Waterpocket Fold in central Utah, Capitol Reef National Park offers rugged, beautiful scenery with deep and narrow canyons, spectacular vistas, great expanses of slickrock and multi-colored rock layers exposed by the massive fold in the earth's crust. Petroglyphs give evidence of the early inhabitants of the area dating back at least 10,000 years. The area also has a more recent history in evidence with the orchards and buildings from the Fruita community that was founded by Mormon pioneers in 1880.

Use the contact info on this page. American Park Network (this organization) publishes the "green guides" that the parks hand out. They will send them to you free.

On the bottom of every page on OhRanger.com there is a square box that offers a link to ordering guides.  The guides are not 100% free, but they are offered for less than $1/piece to cover handling.

If you want to find out where the guides are locally, you can send an email to distribution@americanparknetwork.com


Here's the link just in case:
