Hiking to Golden Cathedral. It didn’t disappoint! This one was an adventure for sure. 😎😱 #grandstaircaseescalante #goldencathedral  #loooonghike #anadventure #checkingthisoffthelist #ontothenext
Day 266/365 (23). Usually I like to paint from under a grandpa ponderosa pine, but a grandma cottonwood will do!  Good times at my first plein air competition, the Escalante Canyon art Festival!  @pleinairmag @rebekahnordstromartworks @the_artists_gallery_flagstaff #stradaeasel #pleinair #pleinairmag #plein_air_life #escalantecanyonartfestival #beautahful #grandstaircaseescalante #oilpainter #beautyiseverywhere #365project #rebekahnordstromartworks

Maybe if the idiots making decisions about our public lands ever stood in a place like this, they'd think a little differently. Hell, maybe they'd think differently about a lot of things. It's good to feel small sometimes. #buckskingulch #grandstaircaseescalante #utah #savegrandstaircase #keepitwild #runwild
i made a slight detour on my trip to hike to this spectacular waterfall

Nature has a way of making you feel very, very small. Always in awe of her beauty. #isthisreallife #utahrocks #rocklife #natureporn #goexplore #coyotegulch #grandstaircaseescalante #snaplensau #wideangle
Once in Lick Wash Canyon it ranges from a meter to twenty meters wide. It's hard to imagine this place during a flash flood but you'd definetly not want to be around.

Another day out at Lick Wash Canyon in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument in Utah.

Willis Creek Canyon, although plenty impressive, doesn't get as much hype as the other canyons in southern Utah. We pretty much had the trail to ourselves. We did cross paths with an elderly couple from Arizona a few miles in, which was random considering the winding washboard of a dirt road you have to take to get to the trailhead. I would guess they were in their 70's. The lady was born and raised in Arizona, which was evident by the wrinkles in her skin due to years of being exposed to the desert sun. She looked rather fragile holding onto her walking stick and to be honest I was a little blown away that she had walked as far as she did with only a single bottle of water to share between the two of them. We struck a brief conversation and continued our own ways. Lovely couple - I wish I would have taken their photo. πŸ‘΄πŸ»πŸ‘΅πŸΌπŸœ

The hike to Peek-a-boo and Spooky Slot Canyons off Hole in the Rock Road at Grand Staircase-Escalante was one of my favorites from our last trip to southern Utah. I can't quite put my finger on why squeezing between two rock walls is so much fun? I tore the mesh pockets on my camera bag from rubbing up against the rock, but it was well worth it.

Fascinating talk on the incredible discoveries coming out of Utah! A hot bed of fossilisation, can't wait to get back! #utah #dinosaurs #cretaceous #fossils #grandstaircaseescalante #australianmuseum @australianmuseum

We saw yellow-bellied marmots in Utah this summer as we drove through Grand Staircase Escalante National Park. This little guy was very serious about only giving us a glimpse of him and of course, it was on a road with no shoulders. We turned around 3 or 4 times to check him out.  This is the best shot I got. Not bad for in a moving vehicle... thank goodness my husband is patient. @towkster70

Apologies if today's post are all about rocks formations, canyons etc, as we were still amazed by them, how Mother Nature can shaped such different forms, shapes, textures etc 😳😳 !!

Backcountry bartering...

The air was so still and the scenery so motionless that it almost felt like sensory deprivation. I could actually hear my own heartbeat without plugging my ears. No wind, not even the sound of a distant cricket. @george_chaos101 pulled out his guitar and laid out a soundtrack for the Milky Way to dance over our heads, as it rose from one point on the horizon to disappear beyond another ✨

Buckskin Gulch was spectacular!πŸ’¦ the mudalos made it out quite sore but happy 🀘🏼And it wouldn't be an adventure if it was easy, right? Got a little bit of a late start, had quite a lot of over the head pack carries and neck deep swims, a hang up at the trash compactor imperial log jam, so much mud, backcountry beers, good vibes, heavy packs but it all made it an unforgettable adventure through the narrow, twisting, deep slots of southern Utah βœŒπŸ»πŸ‘‹πŸ™Œ

Spent last week driving hundreds of miles, hiking dozens of miles, and taking more pictures than I know what to do with. Utah's National Parks are some of the most awe inspiring places I've ever been to and I'm going to make no attempt to sum up the road trip experience. Instead, here's a single photo with the ever wonderful @centeredinthesaddle in which we attempted to take our sunglasses off.

Hiked up a mountain to a lake with some free range cattle and bears but the hammock view was worth it.

I can't imagine this view of Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument with drills in the backdrop. PLEASE take time to tweet, call and write Ryan Zinke, Utah Senators Mike Lee + Orrin Hatch and Utah's Governor Herbert, and the Trump administration and let them know that our public ancestral lands are to be respected and preserved for ALL of us and future generations, not pillaged by corporate oil and gas interests for the sake of a wealthy few. #saveournationalmonuments #saveournationalparks #savegrandstaircase #gsenm #grandstaircaseescalante #savebearsears #nationalparkservice #publiclands #landscape #anseladams #johnmuir #burrtrail #conservationist @sierraclub #WildernessAct

Hoodoos at #sunset. This is a shot of Grand Staircase - Escalate from my #27monuments project a couple months ago, just as the sun dipped into a hole in these amazing "rock goblins." GSE is one of the #nationalmonuments that Secretary Zinke has recommend Trump reduce. It was one of the highlights of my trip and it's way up at the top of #monuments I hope to revisit. The fight to protect these sacred PUBLIC lands continues. #MonumentsForAll #keepitpublic #connectedstates

Enjoying some warmer Temps in Southern Ut. Exploring the endless gravel in Grand Staircase Escalante.

Camping on the edge of #dixienationalforest and #grandstaircaseescalante hiked some of the #bouldermailtrail today. Going to be looking at the #milkyway again tonight.
Yesterday I got to do this 83 foot rappel and creep pass the little snake at the bottom not once, but three times... Rappelling down the canyon... Rappelling down again to retrieve a stuck rope... and ascending back up the second rope to avoid having to do the whole canyon again... What was the hardest part you ask? Not the climbing back up the rope (though I'm feeling that today), but having to pass that snake with only a couple feet of space between him and the canyon wall!

Epic vacation in the books. Tracked down wild mustangs, drove hundreds of miles and hiked almost 50 miles through 3 national parks, 2 national forests, 1 state park and a national monument. Amazing. @wheres_grune_waldo .

This old cottonwood stands as a testament to the harsh conditions of the desert southwest. Often found along washes where they find enough moisture in the water table to survive, occasionally they take root on the bench lands. Rattlesnakes take shelter among the fallen branches, so hikers beware. This one was found while hiking in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument.  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

This is Cottonwood Canyon, about halfway between Bryce Canyon and Lake Powell. The white line is the unpaved Cottonwood Canyon Road, a relatively popular cross-country route starting in the south along US89 near milepost 18, and eventually leading past Kodachrome Basin State Park to Cannonville on UT12. Portions of the canyon are lined/bordered by the upturned strata of the Cockscomb - an elongated series of ridges running along the valley, created by erosion of upwardly-pointing folded rock layers.

@stephanie_coralandtusk is on the road, traveling through Utah and Arizona and stopping to visit @nationalparkservice sites along the way! So far she’s visited @brycecanyonnps and one of the 27 national monuments currently up for review, Grand Staircase-Escalante, pictured here. Secretary of the Interior @repryanzinke has proposed to shrink Grand Escalante, risking this incredible pristine land in favor of coal mining and development. Our national parks and monuments provide us with irreplaceable cultural and environmental treasures. Unprotected they will disappear.

 On a personal level, our national parks and monuments are some of our favorite places in the entire world! We feel so fortunate to have spent time enjoying the wilderness and wildlife unique to each of them. If you too believe that our public lands should stay public and protected, write your senator today. @nrdc_org has a very helpful form for getting in touch with your representatives here: on.nrdc.org/2vYNm9u .

A nice girl from Switzerland came to visit, and her sweet friend sold her on an 8 hour odyssey through a muddy slot Canyon. She became a bit dirty for her liking, but she loved it. πŸ‘‘ #swissmiss #buckskingulch #grandstaircaseescalante #utah
