    Toms Canyon to the Little Dolores

    Saturday, December 6, 2014 In a recent conversation with a Facebook friend, he mentioned to me that there might be some rock art located along the Little Dolores River between two parcels of private property. After doing some research on the property boundaries and finding that access would...

    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...

    Dome Plateau (2002)

    Yes, this is an old story with old analog pictures. Finding these slides and scanning them - the results are mediocre - it reminds my lady and me of one of our early trips to the area between the Colorado River and Interstate 70. In 2002 our vehicle was a venerable 2001 Chevrolet Blazer. We...

    Hell Roaring Canyon

    I had a hell roarin' good time on Friday northwest of Moab. There's some rock art in Hell Roaring Canyon that I've wanted to see for more than a year and I finally got around to doing so. There are two routes into the canyon within easy hiking distance of the rock art: an old constructed stock...

    Professor Creek

    Mary Jane Canyon Saturday, May 17, 2014 The hike up Professor Creek through Mary Jane Canyon has been on my to-do list for a few years now. It's not that far from home for me, but every time I thought about hiking it things never seemed to work out. Either something else came up or it was too...

    Fisher Towers & The Dolores River Overlook

    Saturday, April 5, 2014 A few weeks ago Diane surprised me by signing us up for a horseback ride at the Hauer Ranch in Professor Valley along the Colorado River. I had casually mentioned to her that it was something I wanted to try but never seemed to get around to, so I'm glad she finally...

    A Spring Hurrah in Moab

    The weather is warming and the time finally came to escape my winter hibernation. I grabbed my friend Richard and we set off for a weekend in Moab. We left late due to Friday work and rolled into Moab around 11PM to find it packed to the brim. Spring Break... I'll miss those days. After...

    Lockhart Basin --> Elephant Hill --> Beef Basin

    This was my favorite trip of 2013. Definitely in the top 5 trips in my lifetime. Everything about the trip: the weather, the people, the vehicles, the trail, the history, was the perfect combination. I wouldn't change a thing if I had to do it over again. Thursday morning, Kyle, Rosa, my...

    Tusher Canyon / Green River 11/2013

    My friend, Guy, from NM and I went through Tusher Canyon the first week of November to look for more rock art he had found in the area a couple years ago. He wanted to travel a road he had seen earlier but didn't drive as well. My trusty guard dog... no need to set my door locks A...

    Moab and Grand Junction

    It was getting late in the season for camping with a 2-year-old so I decided to piggy-back on my husband's work trip hotel and take the kids to Grand Junction. We left on a Saturday the last weekend of October, after the little league football game, and headed to Moab. I got their with less...

    Thursday, October 10, 2013 The Original Trip Report on ADVENTR.CO What a crazy day! The weather was all over the place which made for some great dynamic conditions- perfect for photography! My camera sure got a workout today. It started out by raining all night. My tent kept me dry and the...

    Fable Valley to Lockhart Basin

    Tuesday, October 8, 2013 The Original Trip Report on ADVENTR.CO Last November I took a day trip down to Fable Valley in search of a specific pictograph panel. I found a lot of cool stuff that day, but not the panel I was looking for. I returned again with Marty this morning to search for...

    Moab-ish

    @Chris Mosbacker and I made plans for Labor Day weekend to hike and camp in the Moab area. I arrived early Friday (which was also my 37th birthday) and hiked around solo, while Chris was planning on showing up late that evening. I had no fixed agenda--just a list of options to choose from--and...

    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...
