This is one of my all time favorite trips down to Southern Utah.

First up, Black Dragon Canyon. Driving my huge Tahoe all the way through this canyon was fun but I took a beating. My friends who had smaller vehicles could just go around all of the obstacles, I had to drive over everything. We met some guys on 4 Wheeler's heading from the other direction. I stopped and talked to them for a few becasue we entered this canyon pretty late in the day and I wasn't sure how far in we were or how long we had to go (this was an unplanned side trip on this outing). I could tell by the looks on their faces they weren't sure about a vehicle that size going through but I made it and it was a blast. I found out on this forum that I missed a pretty cool cave at the end near the rock art (I think). Now I have a reason to head back down there.

Now it's time for some hiking! First up is Crack Canyon. This is still one of my all time favorites. It's a huge canyon that really has some cool narrow spots and at the end just drops away. I really want to go back and explore this canyon some more. Some of these pictures might be out of order, not sure exactly how that happened. I have been going on these yearly trips for about 6 years now and I have never kept a good trip log of all that we did. I plan to rectify that this year and detail out more of my trips so that I can remember years later what I did and what I liked.

Wow, tons of water in LWHC. I tried driving through Black Dragon once and turned around. We came in from the top but it got too nasty. Might have kept going if there had been another vehicle, but I was solo and it wasn't long after getting really really stuck in Muddy Creek so I was feeling timid. :)

Yeah, that is stuck! The mud down there is so sticky. Lucky you were able to get some help. I have been in a few crazy situations off roading. And the vehicle you have doesn't seem to matter much because to more built it is, the better it gets stuck, that's been my experience anyway.

Nice report and pics. Looks like a really cool area.

I have the same regret. This is the first year I have a log of everything I did and it's basically just my dropbox file structure because I started to take pictures. Better to start late then never.
