    Paris River Canyon - Buckskin Gulch March 2015

    In March 2015 for one of my required classes at UVU for the Outdoor Recreation Management Major, we took a 6 day backpacking trip down the Paria River Canyon. I know a lot of people have done this route before and it's super popular, but the conditions of this trip are what made it so memorable...

    Backpacking through Paria Canyon

    I need to play catch up on my Backcountry Posts! This was originally posted on the Deuter Blog, because I’m an ambassador (their backpacks are AMAZING). There is nothing better than heading out into new backcountry. Actually there is something better: when the location exceeds all your...

    Cottonwood Cove

    Sandstone can be downright weird... 01/17/2015 About a year ago my dad had visited the Coyote Buttes South special permit area, specifically the Pawhole Trailhead. While it was neat, he had heard that the Cottonwood Cove TH had far better. Rivals The Wave better. But he despaired, for the...

    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...

    Buckskin Gulch day hike

    In October, on our way down to the Grand Canyon. We didn't get quite the days that we wanted for our hike in the Grand, our first night was monday in stead of saturday, but we made the best of it, and stopped along the way down. It helped to break up the drive some any way. We got to the trail...

    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, Coyote Buttes, and Toprock

    I had purchased permits for Coyote Buttes South for three days on the BLM website. It’s easy to get permits this time of year, and it seems like I’m ready to go again whenever February comes around. The dates were Monday, Feb. 3 - Wednesday, Feb. 5. For weeks we’d had hardly a cloud in the sky...

    Family hiking nearish Kanab

    So again I learned the hard way not to trust maps and also not to trust other people's blogs whose information may be dated. Also, don't trust Google Earth. So I had read several blogs about going to the Wahweap Hoodoos near Big Water. I read several sites which said they started by Big Water...

    Buckskin Gulch - Wire Pass to Middle Trail

    This is Part 1. Part 2 is here In 2008 Antlerking invited me on my first trip down to the Paria with him and his friend Justin. During that trip I hiked Wire Pass. When I rounded a corner and the whole canyon was glowing it took my breath away and I knew I had to come back! Then again, in...
