car camp -dinah-soar days... vernal, ut. -bike - hike - kayak - August 23, 2024

Our plan involves camping at Red Fleet State Park or if we decide as a group, BLM camping is available at McCoy Flats (9 miles from Vernal) . On Friday evening, we'll head into Vernal to experience the vibrant display of Hot Air Balloons (NIGHT GLOW) along Main Street, they have food vendors and live music. For the second day, post the spectacle of the Hot Air Balloon launch, we intend to hike towards Jones Hole, aiming to reach the banks of the Green River. In the afternoon, we'll catch the Car Show on Main Street. As the day winds down, we'll explore downtown Vernal. On the third day, we'll catch the third Air Balloon launch. Then, we'll return to our campsite, taking the opportunity to kayak on Red Fleet reservoir and explore the dinosaur tracks through a hike or bike.
