    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...

    Wave Winter Wonderland

    New Year's Day | Thursday, January 1, 2015 Welcome to my first trip report of 2015, and what an adventure it was! This was a fun trip report to write, not because the photos are necessarily great, but because it was a fun day in unique conditions. This may have been my tenth visit to Coyote...

    Coyote Buttes North Tour

    Monday, December 29, 2014 On Monday morning we got an early start and drove back to the Wire Pass trailhead so we could spend the day in Coyote Buttes North and visit the Wave. While I have been here plenty of times over the past couple of years and had no intentions of returning this year...

    Coyote Buttes for a Weekend

    Went out this past weekend to hike Coyote Buttes. Gotta say it was pretty swell. This report will be mostly photos because I don't know how to add in much about this hike that hasn't been said by myself or others in different trip reports. I got all excited that there was going to be a pond...

    White Pocket, The Wave & Alstrom Point

    I was able to get a reservation for The Wave on November 12, so I decided to see other places while in the area. Seeing that my permit for The Wave was on Monday, I drove to Page on Friday and got a motel room so I could be ready to go early the next morning. The drive from Moab to Page was...

    Kolob Canyons, Buckskin Gulch, The Wave Nov. 5-7, 2011

    (Fair warning: this trip report is long and a bit pretentious) Quivering, the calf muscles strained. Toes groped, making the muscle fibers contract and release. The sticky rubber-wrapped toe caps on the shoes surrounding those feet scraped along, seeking any little edge or knob upon which...

    The Wave - Coyote Buttes North

    January 2012 After spending the previous two days at White Pocket and Coyote Buttes South, I was feeling a little overwhelmed. Everything was just too photogenic! It's still hard to comprehend the beauty that this small area of the desert holds. To be honest, after doing White Pocket and...

    The Wave Jan 2012

    Well after all of that rain/snow the area received on Saturday (pretty much all day) I was very worried about Church Rocks Road. After my last experience with Alison on that road I almost bailed today. However the forecast was for slightly cloudy skies so I took a chance. I followed Summit...
