For Memorial Day, Audrey and I went backpacking in Escalante. It was a lot of fun even though we got caught in the rain. Fortunately we found shelter in the canyon and it wasn’t a very narrow one. After we got out
we met up with Danielle and company at Bryce Canyon for some good eats.
Anyway, here are the pictures.
At the trailhead
hiking towards an arch on our way in to the canyon
we made dinner in this cave the first night
the next morning the tent was pretty wet from the torrential downpour
I collected some of the runoff to filter and drink later
the trail we came in on…
The mighty escalante river. It was ankle deep the day before.
a waterfall from all the rain
another pretty waterfall
I’m king of the mountain
the residents of the first cave
better accomodations, with a limited spider population, higher ceiling, and better light
a fuzzy caterpillar on a stick
Remember that waterfall from earlier? well it was gone later that day.
dew on the flowers
those little guys were everywhere
to keep ourselves entertained we played tic tac toe
I never won
River water to drink. No surprise this clogged the water filter.
beautiful canyon on the way out
It was much sunnier on the way out.
