We briefly stopped at Kodachrome Basin and found an ideal camping spot outside of the park. It was quite the surreal place to set up camp with soft warm sand to sleep on and plenty of view.
Canyon country never fails to put me in a constant state of childlike awe. Grand Staircase-Escalante is a prime example with sprawling canyons. On this trip, we made a special effort to navigate over to the Zebra slot canyon and the Tunnel slot. The Zebra, was the slimmest I’ve been in. I actually couldn’t safely… Continue reading Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument
Goblin Valley is an amazing little park that is not much more than a blip on the Utah topo map. That said, it’s pretty well packed with photo opportunities and places to explore.

We started on Boreas Pass on… Continue reading Ghost towns, mountain passes, a wildfire, and a Corgi

Definitely give it a read if you are interested.Some notes from my experience: I packed light opting for the (not super comfy) bivy sack instead of a tent. Because we didn’t… Continue reading Fjallraven Classic USA 2018
