July 26 - Hall's Crossing & Burr Trail
Thursday I went west on to Hall's Crossing, a ferry across Lake Powell. While waiting for the ferry, I hiked up a sandstone hill, and took a panoramic photo of the lake.
After landing on the northwest side of the Lake Powell, I took Burr Trail and then Petrified Forest Loop to Escalante.
Along the way, while passing through an area called the Box-Death Hollow Wilderness, and at least 15 miles from any signs of civilization, the car suddenly started making a terrible scraping/squealing sound. It squeaked when I was rolling, and stopped when I hit the brakes. After driving another mile, worrying, I finally tracked the sound to the right rear wheel, where looking closer, I found the culprit — a pebble had jammed between the disc brake and the wheel. Phew!
