when it is 100+ in GJ? I know it'll still be hot, just wondering how hot.

Thanks

100+ in GJ, 85+ at least in Unaweep, probably more. Eric Carlos

It's a simplified view, but 1,000 feet of elevation change equals 3.5 degree F change in temperature.

I think that Unaweep at it's highest elevation, is somewhere between 2,000-3,000 feet higher than the Grand Valley.

I'll let you work the math. But if it's hot in GJ, it's likely hot up there too. Early mornings and shade are actually very nice though.

Unaweep is locals only. You can climb on the monument or rifle if you want. grog m aka Greg McKee
