    2 weeks in the Southwest

    Last May, my wife and I flew out to Las Vegas, and got out of there as soon as possible (not helped by Sixt Rent-a-car -- we were waiting in line for two hours). We had two weeks, and I had most every day planned out. My goal was to spend our time away from the crowds, so we did not go to...

    Cedar to Capitol Reef

    I've spent most of fall this year running around Utah riding my mountain bike. Not because I'm hugely into mountain biking - yes, it is fun, but more so because my side job of writing trail guides has expanded into also writing up some mountain biking trails around the state. 70 of them to be...

    Red Canyon

    Ever notice how some place names pop up over and over again? If I had a dollar for every time I've visited a 'Red Canyon' or a 'Cottonwood Canyon' or a 'Bear Mountain' I'd be a rich woman. It's kind of a shame the pioneers picked such a generic name for this Red Canyon, because it's a...

    Southern Utah Trip

    In a desperate attempt to escape the searing of Phoenix, AZ I planned a 9 day trip to southern Utah. Cooler than usual temps lead me to Lone Rock campground where I got to test out my Aquaglide inflatable kayak. Found some really choppy water at first but the kayak proved to be quite stable...

    Bryce, GSENM and Capitol Reef

    I am giving this trip report thing a try. Hopefully this turns out interesting and informative. My friend Taylor and I started planning this trip about 3 weeks ago. We took 2 days off work and made it into a 4 day outing. We left for GSENM Friday morning from Salt Lake. As we drove past...

    Bryce Canyon & Willis Creek

    This is my first post on here. My family and I have not been big hikers in the past and I have made a resolution to change that this year. I have purchased some gear to get us out and see this great state of Utah. We got the kids some hydration backpacks and hiking shoes and sandals and some...

    Capitol Reef, Grand Staircase-Escalante, Bryce Canyon (March 24-27, 2011)

    This trip had been one I started thinking up the previous fall during a visit to Bryce Canyon National Park with my father. Having scouted around on the internet and Google Earth, I became set on the idea of visiting the Cosmic Ashtray (aka Escavolcano) via Red Breaks. Descriptions of Red Breaks...

    An Evening at Bryce Canyon

    Las Vegas Trip 2012 Friday, March 16, 2012 The Original Trip Report on ADVENTR.CO Friday had arrived, which means it was time to finally leave Las Vegas. Even though we enjoyed visiting some of the areas outside of the city, we were both looking forward to getting out of the big city. After...

    Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument March 2012

    I recently had the good fortune of spending time along the Hole in the Rock Road area in Grand Staircase with my girlfriend. She has been so busy that she has missed out on my last few trips and it was good to spend an extended chunk of time in the desert and on the road with her. We left SLC...

    Coyote Buttes North, Paige, & Bryce Canyon Feb. 2011

    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. Ever since I had seen our friend Clint's photo's from his trip there with his wife in 2007, I've wanted to get down there and see...

    Willis Creek, Grand Staircase-Escalante

    January 2011 I spent a few days last week camping in the Escalante area. We didn't get in nearly as much hiking as planned but we still got to see some cool stuff. The temps at night were into the 20's with a slight breeze so it felt even cooler. Daytime temps were into the 50's which felt ohhh...
