Can you camp on the Dodson trail???
What is the best way to do the Dodson trail?Me and my Wife really want to do it the week after Christmas.We where thinking of parking in the Basin, Back packing to the Meadows, stay the night. Then to Homer Wilson Ranch. Then Dodson to Juniper Canyon and then back up to the Basin.I was going to leave water at Homer Wilson and Juniper Camp site.Thing is.......... It may be to far. And TO HARD. We will be alone so there is no one to drop us off at any one point.We've never done Blue creek or Dodson. My wife thinks she did Juniper in high school (80's).Any thoughts???
I'd do it clockwise from Juniper to Blue so the stunning views of Carousel Mtn, Mule Ears, St. Elena, etc are ahead of you as you descend towards Blue Creek...just my opinion, of course...
I am curious on the amount of time it take to cache water at Homer Wilson and then drive to Juniper Canyon should we look at doing the Outer Outer Mountain Loop?
Also any hotels in Marathon?
I agree. The views westward and southward on the descent from Dodson saddle are beautiful.
