So much to do - so little time. Date Climbed: May 19, 2016
Spent a few days in the GSENM with Escalante as our base. Did some slots, drives, hikes in this wonderful area. The Staircase was one place I really wanted to cross off the list and we'll be back soon.
The first time I was here a buddy and I did a quick backpack trip up The Gulch from the Burr Trail. Nothing too exciting there, but a good introduction to a spectacular area. Years later I met my family out here and we spent some time around the Burr Trail exploring the Circle Cliffs and hiking down Wolverine Canyon. Then we headed over to the Hole-in-the-Rock Road and did some exploring in that area. We hiked from Egypt Bench down to the Escalante River along Fence Canyon, drove all the way out to the Hole-in-the-Rock and hiked down to Lake Powell, and explored the lower narrows of Bighorn Canyon from Harris Wash. There is just so much to do here and I can't wait to come back!
