Expedition Utah Announces Freeze Your Tail Off 8 (FYTO8)

Sunrise at the Sun Tunnels by Bart Williams

What: Expedition Utah would like to invite you to join us for our annual Freeze Your Tail Off event!

This will be the eighth year that we endure the sub zero temperatures and warm camaraderie around the fire at the world famous Sun Tunnels north east of Wendover, Utah! If you’ve been before, you know what a blast this trip is. We will be meeting at noon on Saturday, traversing the historic Transcontinental Railroad to the Sun Tunnels, and then out Sunday morning via the Silver Island Mountains and Wendover.

When: Saturday December 17th – Sunday December 18th

Where: Meet at 12:00pm on Saturday at the Golden Spike National Historic Site [Map].

Who: Anyone and everyone. Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or someone just getting into exploring Utah’s backcountry and varied historical sites we encourage you to come out. If you are planning on coming PLEASE RSVP as space is limited on the ExpeditionUtah forum planning thread. This years event is only open to Expedition Utah members and space is limited to 30 vehicles!

What to Bring: Cold and wet weather gear! This is not your normal camp out. Expect sub zero weather and lots of wind!
Firewood! Bring as much as you can carry. We will use it! (No pallets, spools, or anything that’s been treated, or has staples, nails, etc in it.)
Camera! The sunrise is spectacular! As are the vistas and historic stops along the TCRR and the Silver Island Mountains.

Hope to see everyone there. Don’t forget to RSVP if you would like to join us!
