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.
