    Ode to Delicate Arch

    I was digging through some photos of recent trips to see if there was anything I could build a tale around. I pulled up a few pics from a Delicate Arch hike that my son and I did in December. I hadn’t meant to post anything about it. I mean c’mon.... It’s Delicate Arch. Who hasn’t been there...

    Weekend in Moab

    It has been cold and snowy up here in Montana, so my brother and I decided to head south, looking for a place we hadn't been before. Moab caught our eye, and sort of on a whim we set up a few days to make the 11 hour road trip down. The temps weren't warm by any means, but better than what we...

    Southern Utah Expedition 2014 – Canyonlands, Sandstone and more.

    This is my first Trip Report here on Backcountry Post. I thought it was time to try to give a little back, since a majority places I visited stemmed from all the excellent TRs on this awesome site. For some years now I have had a yearly tradition to travel around the Southwest with my best...

    Six days in The Maze (with some Arches to warm up)

    Ever since enjoying several days in the Needles 12 years ago, I've wanted to see Canyonlands on the other side of the Colorado, and last fall I finally spent 6 days in The Maze. But before heading into the Maze we had an afternoon to kill and so we headed into Arches and caught sunset at...

    Arches National Park December 2014

    On the 28th I headed down to Arches for the day with my sister and her boyfriend, who have never been to Arches. We had left at 8 and got to the park at 10:30. Next time I hope to leave earlier. We stopped in the visitor center and had a look around. It is really nice inside and worth a quick...

    Canyonlands+Arches, October 2010

    October 2010 Audra and I took a three day trip to Moab over the weekend to do some hiking. She has been absent from my trips lately because she's working full time and doing her MBA at night. So we decided we would take a very laid back trip. We left the dogs at home, booked a hotel and set out...

    Winter Camp Ridge

    Saturday, November 1, 2014 Winter Camp Ridge is an obscure place located north of Arches National Park near The Highlands. Most people bypass this area as they are heading elsewhere in the region, but I always seem to be drawn back to this location every so often. My first time here was when...

    Courthouse and the Butler

    I stayed in town on Saturday to cheer my son on during back-to-back soccer games, but took some time off early the next week so I could spend a few days in southeastern Utah. I left home early Sunday and headed toward the Moab area. I wanted to explore the area around upper Courthouse Wash...

    Goblin Valley to Moab

    Ok, so this trip report isn't particularly adventurous or out of the way, but I did get some cool photos. Friday the 5th my brother Justin and I drove down to the Goblin Valley area. We camped on this BLM spot I always go to, by some cool Hoodoos. I woke up at sunrise to see if anything good...
