Cold morning on a December descent of Horseshoe Canyon from Blue John to the river, then packraft paddle over to Hell Roaring, finishing with the 'crawl' route out. I didn't go - just my son and his buddy. 4 days. Testing some of the sleeping bags and quilts I make!
Valley of the Gods from this last weekend...(NOTE: Campfires aren't really allowed in this area for whatever reason despite all the people that get away with it and the fire rings they leave behind, but I felt justified in having one with our own wood and in our own off-the-ground fire bowl to contain all the ash which we packed out, so as to leave no trace or impact from having one)
