Glad you got to go up Mingus Mountain for a bit. That is a great road. Most of your heat is over once you leave Hurricane, at least until you get to Hanksville and then the Hite area and it should cool off there some by Friday. But on the other side of things - they are talking about record setting rain fall (for the date) in eastern Colorado starting Saturday (this weekend into early next week). That will probably spill over into the areas you are going to be in. Here's links to the Grand Junction NWS reports in case you want to check it out occasionally over the next few days: http://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=gjt&product=AFD&issuedby=gjt http://www.weather.gov/gjt/ Ed Page, AZ Edit - and glad you liked the Cape Royal road!
