So much to see

Went here over Spring Break with the family and had a wonderful time. Hole in the Wall Road, Peekaboo and Spooky Canyons and just lots of exploring in general. I'd love to go back with more time and a more ambitious agenda.

So much to do - so little time.  Sucess!

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.

Love It!

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!

Back For More

November 2017: First time in the Grand Staircase part of the monument- Yellow Rock, Hackberry Canyon, Cottonwood Narrows. Then back to the Escalante- Phipps Arch, upper Bighorn Canyon. Amazing

Many times too  Sucess!

I've made several trips to the area and plan on more. The spring and fall are my favorite times to visit.

Slot canyons

Up Peek-a-Boo and down Spooky. Pretty tight twists and turns in Spooky. Calf Creek Falls is a sweet hike on a hot day.

Perfect Place in Spring  Sucess!

I went here to do some canyoneering after I got tired of the crowds in Moab. Remote and full of surprises...everything I hoped for.
