After a long winter hiatus I'm back to adventuring. Luckily my first adventure of the season was to my all time favorite: Utah Desert. With a few friends I hardly knew and a car full of camping, climbing, and camera gear, I knew we were embarking on something great.
We started off late night around a camp fire enjoying whiskey and dutchoven mac and cheese with friends. The next day we got up and headed out to Wall Street on Potash Road to get our hands on some sandstone. With good vibes flowing and friends willing to try climbing for the first time, we wasted the day away in the hot sun against the Green River.
Afterwards we drove out to Canyonlands to set up camp for the night. We found a desolate spot against the rim of one of the canyons. It started raining as we set up our tents, but it didn't stop us from starting a fire and cooking up some camp tacos.
Our second day we took our time with breakfast and running around the canyon we camped at. Once the morning progressed we decided to drive down to the Canyonlands National Park entrance and drive through to the bottom. We discovered many canyons, several cows, and a boat full of elderly tourists on a riverboat.
The best way to truly explore a place is with creative people that have the same priorities as you. I'm incredibly thankful for friends that say yes at the drop of a hat to explore new places. I hope you all get out soon to soak up the sun and feel the sand between your toes (even if that sand is in the middle of a desert).
