Whitest Evening Primrose

Whitest Evening Primrose
Whitest Evening Primrose
[Oenothera albicaulis]
Family: Onagraceae (evening primrose)
17 May 2010 Grand Gulch
Cedar Mesa – Utah

Perfect name for this lovely primrose. It couldn’t be much more "white" than it is.

These are the photographs of a day hike I took on day 6 of my 8 day road trip. It is a hike down Kane Gulch, starting at the Kane rangers’ station, down to Grand Gulch, where the Junction Anasazi ruins are located. Then down Grand Gulch past Turkey Pen ruins; Burned ruins; and many short scrambles up the canyon benches to visit granaries, rock art and cliff dwellings which Grand Gulch and its side canyons are famous for. The scenery in the canyons is wonderful as well, so it makes for great hiking.

The many canyons off Cedar Mesa are up high. The canyon rims are covered in a forest of juniper and pinon pine. As its name suggests, the entire high table land is flat on top. At the trailhead for this hike you are at around 6,500’.

The day before this hike, I had traveled from my fourth camp out at Betatakin (Navajo National Monument), up to Monument Valley, where I took the scenic and enjoyable 17 mile dirt loop route through the spectacular rock formations there. Then I drove across the San Juan River at Mexican Hat, Utah to the Butler Wash dirt road on the east side of the impressive “Comb Ridge”. I took two hikes on the Comb Ridge and enjoyed them both: Procession Panel Petroglyph hike and the Monarch’s Cave Cliff Dwellings hike.

I got a motel room in Blanding for two nights so I could travel showered and packed light to Cedar Mesa for this hike, and then have a hot shower and room waiting for me after the Kane/Grand Gulch hike.

It is about a four mile hike from the Kane Rangers’ to the junction of Kane and Grand Gulch. I hiked a little over three miles from that junction, down to the mouth of Todie Canyon, visiting rock art and cliff dwellings all along the way and enjoying the scenery.

The month before my wife and intended to do this same hike after completing a short hike in South Mule Canyon with some good friends we met in Utah for some hiking together, but recent rain had made Kane Gulch a bit of a mess and the rangers advised us to do the Kane Gulch hike another time. So instead my wife and I hiked the short hike down Sheiks Canyon (high and dry), down to Yellow House ruins, then went on to tour the Valley of the gods.

I didn’t see another hiker until I was about halfway down Grand Gulch where I met two men backpacking from Bullet Canyon to Kane; a bit later I met two nice young couples from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, who were doing the same backpacking trip and planned to stop at the Kane & Grand Gulch junction to camp the night, before exiting up Kane Gulch.

From Kane Rangers’ station trailhead down to the mouth of Todie Canyon and back was a little over 14 miles. The hiking was easy, scenic, and straightforward. Sweet pea was out in force and full blossom giving color and fragrance to the hike. A most enjoyable day hike and the last hike I took on this road trip, as the weather began to change for the worse, as I exited Kane Gulch.

May 12th through May 19th – - I traveled 9 states in 8 days, camping, driving back roads, visiting scenic and historic sites, and taking some great day hikes. These are some of the photographs from this solo "road trip".

Day One: Home in Eastern Washington; Mountain Home, Idaho; Owyhee, Nevada and a very cold night camped at Wild Horse Crossing south of Mountain City, Nevada.

Day two: NEVADA – - Mountain City; Elko; Wells; Ely (through a snow storm); Panaca. UTAH – - Enterprise, Veyo, to a warm and scenic enjoyable camp and hiking at Snow Canyon.

Day three: UTAH – - Snow Canyon; St. George; Hurricane; to Fredonia, Arizona. Forest Service Road #22 and many others to places like Monument Point and Indian Hollow. Too cold to camp (got down to 19 degrees that night), so dropped down low to BLM wilderness land off 89 A and spent the night among sagebrush and juniper with curious mule deer as "neighbors".

Day four: Opening day of the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. Visited the park and arriving early had many places (Cape Royal), entirely to myself. ARIZONA: Vermillion Cliffs; Page; Kaibito; and Navajo National Monument and Betatakin, where I had my nicest camp site (Canyon View at Betatakin).

Day five: Betatakin camp to Kayenta; Monument Valley to drive the 17 mile "loop road" through the monument; to Mexican Hat to recharge my camera battery (Canon G10) while eating Navajo stew and fry bread at a cafe along the San Juan River; to Comb Ridge where I took two short enjoyable "rock art and cliff dwelling" hikes (procession panel and Monarch Cave ruins; up to Blanding, Utah where I checked into a small motel for two nights.
