    Kolob Canyons, Buckskin Gulch, The Wave Nov. 5-7, 2011

    (Fair warning: this trip report is long and a bit pretentious) Quivering, the calf muscles strained. Toes groped, making the muscle fibers contract and release. The sticky rubber-wrapped toe caps on the shoes surrounding those feet scraped along, seeking any little edge or knob upon which...

    The Wave - Coyote Buttes North

    January 2012 After spending the previous two days at White Pocket and Coyote Buttes South, I was feeling a little overwhelmed. Everything was just too photogenic! It's still hard to comprehend the beauty that this small area of the desert holds. To be honest, after doing White Pocket and...

    Late last fall Alene put in for permits for Coyote Buttes North (aka "The Wave") and we found out about a month or so later that we were selected for late February.

    White Pocket, January 2011

    January 2011 The White Pocket. An isolated, notoriously hard-to-reach patch of sandstone in a remote corner of the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. For more than a year, it has eluded me. But on New Years Eve 2011, I finally made it. Yes, technically, I made it there on my first attempt in...

    Well after all of that rain/snow the area received on Saturday (pretty much all day) I was very worried about Church Rocks Road. After my last experience with Alison on that road I almost bailed today. However the forecast was for slightly cloudy skies so I took a chance. I followed Summit...

    White Pocket

    White Pocket in the Paria/Vermillion Cliffs National Monument has been on my hit list for years but because of what is called a road I had never attempted to drive out there.
