Amazing trip. Awesome beauty in this trip. We started at fuller bottom and hiked out to the San Rafael Bridge Campground. The trail was difficult to follow the first day as it is mostly cattle trails that wind in several different directions and it is easy to lose them when you cross the river. Virgin Spring Canyon was a great location for camp. We never did find the spring however, so we had to ration the rest of our water. From camp, the trail was easy to follow for the remaining hike back to the campground. Beautiful weather, colors, and scenery. Couldnt have asked for a better end of the year trip!
Started at Fuller Bottom, hiked downstream to Virgin Box Canyon and return. We crossed stream 36 times, none more than waist deep, walking stick helpful. Towering red rock walls, amazing spring pool and water at Virgin Box (and perfect sandy camping). Midweek, had _entire_ canyon to ourselves (no tracks in the sand). it was special. Can camp at new BLM campsite atop Wedge the night before..catch it on a full moon night for a treat.
