  1. Cordell,

    I heard your call-in on Saturday and was excited to hear of your planned adventures into the Unitas this summer.

    I have been surfing your site the last week and you have had some incredible experiences, caught some great trout, and captured some beautiful pictures.

    I am a scoutmaster in Kaysville and my boys decided this year that they wanted to do a backpacking summer camp instead of the traditional camp. I and the other leaders are avid backpackers and have explored various parts of the Unitas. (Kings, Red Castle, Naturalist Basin) I was wondering if you could give some recommendations of areas to go. We plan to have a group of 10 maybe 11. I know it is large group for this tender area. (6-7 boys 4 adults) We would like to do either a loop or in one end and out the other. We have talked of: Grandaddy basin to Naturalist basin and then out to the mirror lake highway.

    Thank you for your drive and desire for discovery.
    Bryce

  2. Sorry Bryce for not understanding the system and noticing your comment and replying. I guess it's too late for this summer to give any recommendations, but if I can help for next summer let me know. CORDELL
