    Nine Mile Canyon VII: Awesome!

    After spending the previous day in Nine Mile Canyon and seeing some high-up rock art from a distance, I returned to climb high above the canyon floor to get a closer look. First, I stopped to look for a petroglyph site that Celia had told me about the day before. There's a "First Site" in...

    Nine Mile Canyon VI: Big, Big Sheep

    On Sunday, February 1st, I met up with Randy (@IntrepidXJ) and Diane in Wellington and we drove to Nine Mile Canyon to revisit some rock art sites and look for new ones. I'd already been to the first place we hiked to, though I noticed a few things I hadn't before. I'd seen this petroglyph...

    Trough Spring Ridge

    Our plan was to travel to Hanksville but a lot of rain on UT 24 stopped us. We decidet to turn around, heading back to Moab for a lazy afternoon. East of Green River on I 70 we saw the Book Cliffs in a quite different manner than usual. Grey was replaced by a much darker color, black in places...

    Nine Mile Canyon Tour

    Saturday & Sunday, January 31 - February 1, 2015 After spending Friday in Salt Lake City so we could see Nothing More (one of our favorite bands) in concert, we spent the rest of the weekend in Price so we could visit plenty of rock art sites in Nine Mile Canyon. Diane had never been to Nine...

    Nine Mile Canyon V

    On January 3rd Alan and I went, once again, to Nine Mile Canyon, this time to find some very remarkable pictographs. We'd each separately learned of the pictographs fairly recently, and though we knew roughly where they were, we didn't have an exact location. I'd tried unsuccessfully to locate...

    Nine Mile Canyon IV

    For my fourth and final trip to Nine Mile Canyon of 2014, Chris and I took Karin and Katie and our dogs on an easy tour of some of the better rock art. We made a quick stop in the upper part of the canyon to see a pit house that I'd driven past many times but had never stopped to look at. It...

    Tusher Canyon Bench

    This is more or less a follow tour report from our trip into Right Hand Tusher Canyon and the name Tusher Canyon Bench is not an offical one. We derived it from Coal Canyon Bench a connected close relative more to the east. The trip dates from May 2014 Start Point is 12S 0585060 4326810 at the...

    Lower Price River

    I didn't expect that the lower Price River held so much rock art, but I accompanied Alan on a trip there this past weekend and we found a lot. I was glad to have a guide because much of the rock art is difficult to find unless you know where to look. Alan drove his truck and we got about as...

    Dry Fork & Browns Park

    Flaming Gorge Days Friday - Sunday, June 27-29, 2014 This weekend Diane and I had tickets to a concert at Flaming Gorge Days in Green River, Wyoming on Saturday evening featuring Otherwise, Royal Bliss, Redlight King and Pop Evil. Aside from the concert we really didn't have any other set...

    Nine Mile the Third

    I had planned on camping at Cliff Dweller Flat and hiking Eardley Canyon this weekend, but a 30% chance of rain scared me off. The long section of slot canyon in Eardley is no place to be during a storm given its huge drainage area. Instead, I slept in late at home and on Saturday morning made...

    Nine Mile Canyon, Round Two

    I returned to Nine Mile Canyon on Sunday--the second trip in as many weeks--to find some rock art I'd missed the previous weekend. I found the Owl Panel this time. It turns out last time I was one canyon too far over. I was surprised by how many other petroglyphs were in the same area as the...

    Nine Mile Canyon

    I was looking for an easy outing to take on Saturday, and after having discussed Nine Mile Canyon a bit with my hiking partners from the previous weekend, I decided to give that a shot. I've been through Nine Mile a few times--once I followed an online guide that I printed out which tells where...

    Book Cliffs Trail

    The kids and I returned to the Book Cliffs on Saturday to finish something we started more than seven years ago. In late 2006 we hiked a small portion of an old pack trail leading up through the Book Cliffs. The trail became too steep and rough for the kids, then ages 3 and 5, and on the way...

    Black Friday in Range Creek

    Black Friday | Friday, November 29, 2013 After spending Thanksgiving in Price with Kelly, we set off to spend our Black Friday hiking in Range Creek instead of chasing bargains in some crowded store. When we left in the morning the sky was cloudy and it was lightly snowing, but that didn't...

    Friday - Sunday, October 25-27, 2013 The Original Trip Report on ADVENTR.CO I left work on Friday and drove back into Utah so I could spend the weekend in Price. As I drove north on Highway 6 I pulled over to take a few photos as the sun was setting for the day. Warm evening light usually...

    Range Creek

    I finally took advantage of an opportunity to visit Range Creek this weekend. It's not as though I haven't had ample opportunities--it's really close to home and full of the stuff I like most: rock art, ruins, wildlife, and beautiful scenery. Alan invited me to accompany him on the day after...

    Range Creek 6/01/2013

    I found information about Range Creek permits through another forum (Exp.UT) so I decided to give it a go. I arrived at the TH about 9:30 a.m. The rest of the group was already there, and off we went. We had very little information regarding locations for RA and / or granaries, but...
