    Hey folks,

    Just got off the phone with Excursions in Escalante, the road is wiped out in several places well before the Egypt road. Some washes that have cut the road have created banks well over 10 feet tall. Said they have several cars still stuck out there, hoping to start repairing some time this week but it will take a long while before its back in shape. Road crews are overwhelmed with all the damaged roads in So. Utah.

    Do you know what the road conditions are for access to Neon and Chop Rock? I have some friends in Utah this week (from MS) that are heading down from the Roost to do, try and do them tomorrow and Friday. They were planning on doing Egypt today, but I got a text early that said, Egypt is a No Go.

    Neon and Chop are accessed from the Egypt TH.

    :oops: Thanks, obvious by my ignorance I've not been there...yet. They're kinda out of their element as well but I'm sure they'll figure it out.
