    A Square 1/2 mile in the Red Cliffs

    4/26/15 The Red Cliffs Recreation Area is a popular site north of St George. It has a developed campground, dinosaur tracks, old buildings, and a little canyon with a waterfall. I thought all of that fine and cool, the first time I visited. But as the visits there started to add up I began...

    Yellow Knolls

    I was hiking today and I thought to myself, why in the world haven't I been posting any trip reports from all the day hikes I've been doing lately? I've been working on a project for work that involves doing about 60 hikes this spring. I started it off in St. George in March and have been doing...

    March Weekend in St. George

    My photography kit has updated completely. It started last fall with the move from crop to full-frame. That necessitated replacing my venerable Canon 10-22mm EF-s lens with something more appropriate to the format. The additional heft on the new body/lens combo meant moving up from an...

    Red Reef, Dutchman Draw

    Traci and I made this year's annual trek to southern Utah alone, leaving the kids with her parents and the dogs with my mom. We arrived in Hurricane late Thursday afternoon and spent the evening with Eric and Sherie at their place and went out for a late dinner. Friday was our first full day...

    In the Land of Yant

    In the Land of Yant This was a long planned trip for some sunset shots for me with finally having a long weekend off again. A few days before the trip I found out that @sixstringsteve wanted to backpack in the area that weekend and we decided to meet up at my preferred camp spot roughly half a...

    The Yant

    I had three days off and it was my birthday on one of them. AKA I had more than enough excuses to leave the big, thick aired city for sunny St George. I wanted to get out and do something while I was down there: Toroweap? Zion? Coyote Buttes? My dad and I settled on what he's called "The...

    Slaving away in Zion

    Lately I've had the pleasure of getting paid to hike a bunch of easy trails for a project that I'm working on. More details on that early next year but it's been pretty intense. I think I'm about up to 20 that I've hiked just since the end of October. It's been fun to see all these places I...

    Rainbow Ridge Redux

    It's been nearly 9 months since my initial visit to Rainbow Ridge. Yes... I'm still calling it that even though almost everybody knows the area as something else. I just hate that 'other' name as it's geographically incorrect AND I'd rather not have my pages indexed by Google with the others...

    Yant Flat

    I saw a TR on this place awhile back and thought it was gorgeous. Sadly I never took the time to figure out where it was. Youth these days! Finally, I decided it was time to figure out where this awesome place was. I had an assignment due for a photography class; Yant Flat, with its lines and...

    SUU Yankee Doodle

    So as part of my experience at SUU I helped create a new program called the Pacesetters Club. Essentially we are making it possible for the outdoor recreation majors, like myself, to get out and gain some experience leading others in the outdoors. I have become the go-to student for these...

    Church Rocks

    For the last 7 years I have driven from Hurricane to St George using I-15 and for 7 years I have planned, and wanted to hike to the crazy honeycomb/talfoni weathered hoodoo visible from the freeway and finally I was able to run to the Church Rocks (ran out of time so didnt get as close as I...

    Arch Trail, Red Cliffs

    I try to hike Arch Trail in the Babylon section of Red Cliffs every winter This is by far one of my favorite trails in Southwest Utah. The trail is one of the better bang for your buck hikes as to the arch it is just around 2 miles and within the two miles you have a photogenic arch, hoodoos...

    Cinder Knoll Loop Trail

    Typically on Tuesday afternoons I try to go on a long ride on my 10 speed but because of Hurricane force winds in the City of Hurricane :rolleyes: I decided to go on a quick trail run in the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve. Because the trailhead is about 2 miles from my house I ran on the Cinder Knoll...

    Sandstone Salvation

    It's been a long, cold, stinky winter season in the Salt Lake valley, so it was with great pleasure that I was able to sneak south again for an early reprieve from the seemingly never-ending winter at home. Nikita and I met up with pixie1339 early Saturday morning and headed south, connecting...

    Southern Utah March 2013

    It's becoming increasingly difficult for my wife and I to leave southern Utah after attending the annual geocaching event there. Three days wasn't nearly enough time to get our fill this year, even though we packed a lot of fun into those three days. Our friends Eric and Sherie once again...

    Red Cliffs Conservation Area

    After driving by the Red Cliffs Conservation Area just north of St. George for so many years, I finally decided to stop and explore a little. My ultimate goal was to find a backpacker-friendly route through the heart of the Cottonwood Wash area. Planning for a longer hike someday, I was looking...

    Yankee Doodle - Feb. 2013

    (side note: I realize this is the second report on this canyon in a month so I apologize) This was the second canyon of the day that we combined with doing Boltergeist Canyon first. I was surprised how much faster we got through this canyon, despite more down climbs and obstacles to work...

    Coyote Buttes Utah

    I compare a lot of things to Coyote Buttes/White Pocket but literally this is the closest thing I have found in Southern Utah with one added bonus scenic drop offs and deep canyons. While this place is not "undiscovered" as we saw footprints on occasion, there is very little online and because...

    Boltergeist Canyon Feb. 2013

    3 years ago I was down in the St George area for a work trip and looking for a quick hike to do in the area. I found out about the Red Cliffs NCA and explored a bit up to the pools area and a little beyond. I was blown away by the beauty of the area and curiosity got the best of me when I got...
