Off to Canyonlands!


So, tomorrow morning I'm off for a 3-day backpacking trip to Canyonlands National Park in Utah. This will be my fourth time there but I just can't get enough of that place--everywhere you look you want to take a picture and it's the dictionary definition of desolate (if you go to the right places).

I'm so excited that I'll have a hard time sleeping tonight even though my friend, Catzia, doesn't arrive in Denver until midnight and I'll be dead tired by the time we get back from the airport. I don't know about you but I always have a hard time sleeping before a long-anticipated trip.

I'm bringing my Mountainsmith Ghost (since we'll have to carry all of our water in) and not packing too light since it's only a few days and the terrain is relatively tame. So, that means more room for luxury items! And, when I get back, I'll have some new video treats for all of my loyal readers. All 6 of you. Hmmmm....maybe this will be the trip where I do something stupid enough to finally earn a trail name! Well, tah for now.

Hey everyone, I'm back! And it was a great trip. Thanks to all 11 of you that support me. It means a lot! Anyway, more later about the trip. Now, I've got to unpack and get all the sand out of my gear. More later...

That's where my Outward Bound course was held in 1979. It was amazing - I should never have come back to Michigan! I should have stayed out there.
