Kelsey, Ann .
Basin and Range Flora.
This is an all day field trip with emphasis more on walking than driving. There will only be two van stops. The first stop for walking and botanizing will be at Big Spring (elev. 4,223ft.) in the West Desert of Utah, south of Timpie Springs Wildlife Management Area. This is a great halophyte spot. The temperatures will be hot in an area with little cover. The second stop will be a bit cooler in the Stansbury Mountains up South Willow Canyon. We will walk the Deseret Peak trail with no intention of making it to the top.The trail will start at around 6,000 ft.
Due to heat concerns of the first stop and hiking at elevations above 6,000 ft on the second stop the trip could be termed mildly strenuous.
Special personal gear would include a hat, walking stick, a good supply of water, personal snack/energy food items, jacket, sturdy hiking/walking footwear, sun screen and sun glasses.
Includes transportation, continental breakfast, lunch and water
