Default Great Trip Short Summary
Hi All,
I will create a more detailed trip report. This was awesome, something I wanted to do for years and will do this again. The Suburban was a great vehicle for this type of expedition. The extreme-ness in this adventure is the scale (few other people and 4-6 hours or 100s miles from services). I drove almost 200 miles within the park.

In summary
1. Friday Camp Cinders ORV
2. Saturday Nite Camp at Toroweap/Tuweep GCNP- great view of the stars.
3. Sunday visit Mt. Trumbull and Whitmore Canyon Overlook then Camp at Twin Point. (See 2 pictures)
4. Monday egress via Hidden Canyon to Gold Butte NM then to Bunkerville, NV.

It is a beautiful place. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
What were the daytime temps out there? It doesn’t sound like the campground was full.
Nice pictures. Thanks for posting them.

Daytime temps varied based on altitude.

1. Tuweep - high 80s
2. Whitmore Canyon very high 90s maybe 100
3. Twin Point Low 80s.
4. Mt Trumbull 70s
5. Pakoon Spings - very hot - easy high 105+.
