Peace Offering
Peace Offering
Accidentally disturbed an ant nest so as a peace offering, I gave them a small chunk of my Clif Bar - they seemed happy to accept the food as restitution!

Out    Bell's Trailhead > Dinosaur > Dinosaur Track Area > Dinosaur > Upper Big Hill > Badlands> River  Bend > Lower Ghost Camp      4.2 miles

Return Lower Ghost Camp > Lower Ghost Camp Trail > River Bend Ghost Camp > South Slick Rock > service road (N) > North Scenic Loop > service road (N) > Shady Trail > Bell's Trailhead    2.4 miles

Temps in the low 50's, sunny with wispy clouds, steady North wind.

A month or so ago, controlled fires burned some of the vegetation and cleared the trails.  Trails are dry and fairly hard packed now.  LOTS of birds out especially Cardinals and Woodpeckers.  Not much else going on but it was a good hike nonetheless.

NOTES

Water available at the campground by Bell's Trailhead.

Water, shade and info kiosk at Dinosaur Track Viewing area.

Water, shade, info kiosk and dry toilets available at River Bend Ghost Camp.  CAUTION - dry toilets are old and rarely used, be careful if you have to sit on one!!
