    Four Days in Salt Creek Canyon, April 2021

    Spring break this year took me to Salt Creek Canyon in Canyonlands NP where I enjoyed four days of solitude on trail. I wish it had been more, but a few days here and there throughout the year are about all that I can squeeze in with work and other obligations these days. I am in the camp that...

    Another Salt Creek Canyon Report

    Its been a year since I made this trip and I'm only finally getting around to posting something. Part of the reluctance is due to the other great reports on this web site. I don't really have anything to add and a lot of my pictures are repeats of ones found on those other reports. But, it was a...

    Upper Salt Creek Canyon, again

    I am sure nothing in this trip report is any new discovery, but I thought I'd tell you my experience March 27-29 compared to a trip I did in June about 6 years ago. First off, the whole permitting thing is very different now as I am sure lots of other people already know. It was not online 6...

    Salt Creek, Canyonlands

    May 2011 Salt Creek is one of those places that seems to be well off the radar for most. The name probably doesn't help a lot. I suppose one could assume that it is an inhospitable place with salty water. I never even thought to visit Salt Creek until earlier this year when I saw a couple of...

    Salt Creek May 2013

    For the second summer in a row I found myself headed to the desert for a backpacking trip with someone I had yet to meet, thank you! I was racing the sun to the campsite that @langutah had designated as our meeting spot. Even in my rushed state, I drove quite carefully and...

    Salt Creek canyon June 2012

    I hesitated a lot to post a few of my trip reports from last year due to the loss of most of my pictures to Hurricane Sandy. Luckily I had uploaded a few pictures online before it happened so it wasn't at least not a total loss. :) Salt Creek Canyon June 2012 After I have visited Angel...

    Upper Salt Creek

    Day 1: We left the hotel at about 9:00 am with clear skies and drove to the Needles visitor’s center to obtain our permit. Newspaper Rock was on the way so we stopped and took a few pictures. At the visitor’s center, the ranger reviewed basic backcountry regulations and water availability. The...

    Lower Salt Creek/Paul Bunyan's Potty

    It was early march, and I checked the forecast for the following weekend. With a low of 50, and a High of 72 I knew it was time to use that last personal day I was hanging onto. With my wife coming along, I wanted to pick something that had available water, great views, and decent seclusion. We...
