To Casner or not to Casner. That is the question.
I was unable to procure a permit this year to run Casner. Such a bummer. I am in line in case someone cancels.
That said, I am still planning on camping. I will simply figure out some alternate trails to take.
I have set aside the weekend of October 9 - 11. I plan on camping at the "new spot" which is a little further east on 231.
Make it on your calendars as it is only 17 weeks away!
FWIW - Now campers are going around the boulder as of last week.
Now sure what you mean by campers? My understanding there is no camping between the gates. This really is pretty much a dead issue this year unless enough groups drop out to allow CSC to have the run. As much as I like this area on top of the rim can't think of anything challenging enough for a group run. Early morning and evening offer some wildlife viewing but in a larger group usually only those at the front see them.
To be clear, full size trucks with campers on them can make it around the said rock blocking the road.
