I'm gonna be passing through this coming weekend, was wondering what the conditions are in the la sals this time of year, specifically dakota crags?  I know it gets a lot cooler up there, but how much cooler? i'm having trouble finding a good station on wunderground, anyone have some good weather beta?  much appreciated!

Will be hot in the sun in the afternoon  mornings and evenings are good

You can generally assume about three degrees per thousand feet, right? The Dakota crags are about 9600' and Moab sits around 4000' - so about fifteen degrees cooler than the Moab forecast but still tons of sun. The area around Lawn Dart and Generations gets some reprieve.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
