There's much out on the internets about this one. This is the classic Buckskin Gulch/Paria Canyon thruhike. So I'll make it a photo tour mostly. Petroglyphs extraordinaire (though I don't show a lot). Feel like I'm living in the past reminiscing on my annual UT trip.

Wire Pass TH--->Wire Pass--->Buckskin Gulch--->Paria River Canyon--->Lee's Ferry. Shuttle required. 70 miles driving to place the second vehicle at Lee's Ferry.

Nice report! I am sad we missed the petroglyphs now that I see them in your report.

Thanks for sharing!
