travis_smStretching my arms upward as I scan the horizon, I’m getting excited to hike into Horseshoe Canyon. I’m back at Crystal Geyser, and enjoying the view overlooking the Green River. Its early morning and the sun is dancing above the horizon and beginning to dispel the cool air that night brought to the area. Cattle are grazing on the grass just south of the geyser, and I notice the geyser has burped a few splashes onto the surrounding rock and steam has started to form.

20160510_070422I recently returned from Utah on a 5 day adventure touring some petroglyphs around Green River and the Four Corners Region. Camping under the stars and hiking into some of these remote areas was exhilarating and exhausting. Utah in May is still very comfortable with highs in the 80-90’s and lows averaging around 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
