Little Egypt near Hanksville

At our meet-up in Escalante last month several of us spent a day canyoneering in an area named Egypt.

Powderglut asked about the possibility of another area named Egypt near Hanksville. Here's what I know about it:

Danny this place is on my to do list. But if we are doing Green River for a meet-up I think it may be a little far for a day trip.

I guess a couple hour ride is not out of the question though. Awesome looking place.

Looks like like a cool place to explore, but It might be too far afield for a meet-up based out of Green River. Just sayin'.

Lot less than the daily trips that were made from the Moab meet up to Cedar Mesa.

Not a problem from Green River imo. Maybe also Burr Point overlook. Not been there yet but it's on the list. Toroweap also took a lot longer.

Google maps said an hour and a half. Very doable. Makes me think some of the North Wash canyons could be targeted too. And.. for some adventurous jeepers, possibly the Maze area of Canyonlands.

Tet it would be an honor to have you back again. Pretty far away for this trip. But.. it would be great if you +A can make it. Oh by the way , The Maze road is pretty brutal, I'm told. For sure... will need special high clearance 4wd to rent for this trip.
