Dusy -- August 1-4

The idea of running the Dusy was brought up by Richard as an alternative to the Colorado run. It looks as though Richard will still be going to CO, but I am still planning on running the Dusy on the dates previously discussed (August 1 to 4). I've never been on the Dusy, but that hasn't stopped me before (that's what maps are for). Is anyone else interested?

Rubicon was great. There was so much water. Here are the pictures: http://picturecenter.kodak.com/share?invite=UEkr4mmG7P8DI8GYzQ1Q

Cool pictures. Looks like there's still some deep nasty water up on the 'con.
I'm still interested in doing Dusy-Ershim, I'll have to see what happens in the coming weeks.

It's looking like we might be able to make Dusy right now. We'll see how it goes as it get closer.

The only information I know right now is that I'd like to start the trail Thursday morning @ 8:00 AM (August 1). I'm not familiar with the area so I was waiting to post any information until after the trip to Swamp. I hope to get more information then.

The start of Dusy on the south end is easy to find, easier than most trails. Follow the signs to Courtwright Resevoir. As you come to the lake there is a Y in the road, to the left goes to the campground and to the right is the dam and the start of Dusy. Follow the road until you see an obvious trail to the left, and signs identifying it as Dusy-Ershim Trail. If you get there early enough you may find a campspot, or I think you can camp along the road like is done back by Dinkey Creek. You could camp in the same spot we use for Swamp, and then drive the 1/2 hour to the trailhead in the morning.

We'll be starting the trail Thursday morning (August 1). I think we'll be getting off the trail on Sunday (August 4).
