OK... I have spoken to the Death Valley National Park Service about Titus Canyon. They told me Titus Canyon has had a lot of rain and needs to be graded before it can be opened to the public. :cry: Since they were unable to tell me when it would be open, I have decided to change the April club run to Gold Butte. Like Titus, Gold Butte is one of our favorite runs and is located just outside of Mesquite, which is about 90 miles North of Las Vegas, on I-15.

We have not done this trail for a couple of years, so I will be doing a pre-run this coming Wednesday, the 27th. Once I have determined the trail is doable, I will post again with the date of the run and meet location time and place.

Anyone wanting to go on the pre-run, let me know.

Thank you sir and anyone else who is interested. We will meet at the Loves truck stop, where
I-15 and Hwy 93 meet, Wednesday morning at 8:30. This is a long run, so make sure you have a full tank of gas and bring a lunch.

John

First, I want to thank Dusty for coming on the pre-run with us.

We will be running Gold Butte on Saturday, April 27th. We will meet at the Chevron station at the corner of Mesquite Blvd & Riverside Rd. Meet at 9:00 and roll out at 9:30. Please make sure you have a full tank of gas, this run is approximately 115 miles long.

If anyone has questions, or needs directions, please let me know. I hope to see you there.
