|I didn't see one rabbit my whole stay here.|
|I was actually glad the Tank DOESN'T have 4WD so I wasn't tempted.|
|No "Beware of Falling Rocks" signs anywhere.|
|This was about a half mile past the sign warning about high clearance.|
Fire ring: Yes
Water Access: None (No water available, bring in what you’ll need!)
Dump station: No
Level sites: Mostly
Shade: No (Rabbit Valley is semi-desert, summer months are hot.)
Verizon reception: 4G, 4 out of 4 bars
Millenicom reception: 4 out of 4 bars
Cost: 14 days free camping
Like you I wondered how in the Heck could there be 4G cell reception out there 35 miles away from Grand Junction? And 4 out of 4 bars?
|I guess Verizon had an extra cell tower so they stuck it here?|
The mid-May weather at Rabbit Valley was days in the mid-80's and nights in the mid-50's, humidity was very low so it didn't seem that hot although I was warned by fellow campers the place gets too hot in June-July-August. A couple days it got really windy in the afternoon with my camp chair going for a "walk" until I was able to chase it down.
|This canyon was about a mile hike from my campsite.|
I was running low on food after a week so I wasn't able to take the BLM up on their 14 day free offer. I need to work out putting my first few days meals on ice in the Tank's cooler and have the later days food be stored in the frig and freezer, that would extend my "stay ability", I guess. Anyway Rabbit Valley is a great camping experience and if you have a dirt bike or ATV it's even more fun. Mountain biking and hiking was a blast for me!
