After our amazing day at Coyote Buttes North, we had another fabulous day on 3/25. We went with a guide to White Pocket and Coyote Buttes South. We don't have experience driving in sand and were not willing to get stuck and have to spend time waiting for a tow truck. Kanab Tour Company was great - super flexible! Dan picked us up at Stateline campground at 8:15am Kanab time (we were careful to keep the time straight, as Arizona is an hour behind). We went to White Pocket in the morning and explored there for awhile, then drove to Cottonwood Cove and spent the rest of the day there. He dropped us off at Stateline at 7:15pm Kanab time, just before sunset. Another very full and fabulous day for us!

White Pocket (in no particular order)

Fun to walk where the dinosaurs roamed so long ago!

Another incredible place. Do I bother trying to understand the geology of all this? Or just enjoy. I just enjoyed!

Super cool! Nothing wrong with a local guide. I wouldn't mind getting paid to guide some people into some of the areas I've gotten some good experience with. Also wouldn't mind paying for a guide for other areas who might be able to point out some things I'd otherwise miss if I could afford it.
 
Brings back memories of a day at each in November. Thanks! After having been to both a couple of times now, we think that WP is our favourite of the two. And no permit. Yet?

Thank you again! It would not have been as wonderful if we had gone with our stupid idea of walking from Lone Tree - thank goodness we didn't spend all of our day walking from one part to another rather than exploring the fabulous formations!
