Today after work I did a quick hike/scramble up the ridgeline above the moki steps in Quail Creek Canyon and heading NW toward Dicks Canyon before the clouds rolled in. Very approximate route:

Looking east toward Hurricane Rim, Zion and Eagle Crags. Also another ridgeline I'd like to do.

Nice! You know what they say, working is all about the apres-work. Or something like that. The traverse between eagle crags and Colorado city across the Canaan Mtn Wilderness is on my short list. Looks like a blast, if steep and brushy.

It's on mine too. I've done both ends of the hike, but not the link-up.
