Here's another panorama from the Island in the Sky District of Canyonlands National Park!
One of the things I missed out on during my visit was driving on the White Rim Road and Schafer Road. Both of these required high clearance vehicles, with 4WD recommended…and my rear wheel drive sedan would not have been ok with rocky dirt roads that could turn muddy with any rainfall.
Instead, I took a break and observed those brave enough to try Schafer Road from an overlook! It was a really cool view from where I was, but I needed my widest angle lens to make a panorama that fit!

According to the Access Fund, new information proposes a 90% reduction to Bears Ears National Monument, exposing Indian Creek to industrial development. (Read more here: bit.ly/2x92LaL)
Living in Southwest Colorado, I am fortunate enough to have experienced the desert in all it's raw dry, scorching, freezing, tear-inducing, healing, breathtaking, and beautiful glory. As a climber, Indian Creek is a precious place to me. Its history alone has inspired more adventure than any industrial development ever could.
I took this picture from my campsite at the creek a few weeks back. I was bruised and sore after a long, hot, exhausting day of climbing, but watching this sunset I felt more humbled and at peace than I ever am when I am at home in the "real world". I hope I never have to see the day that this sacred place is overtaken by our selfish, ignorant, materialistic species.
It's been too hard living, but I'm afraid to die 'Cause I don't know what's up there, beyond the sky
It's been a long, a long time coming

A horseshoe bend in the Colorado River.
But not *the* Horseshoe Bend near Page, AZ. This one is further upriver in Canyonlands National Park, in a section called Meander Canyon. Which is a bit upstream of where the Green River joins the Colorado River. And the official name appears to be "The Loop"! Good thinking 😁
If you're ever at the Costco in Lehi and have some extra time, go and try out Hunter Park! It's like 5 minutes up the road, and it's a good one! The playground has a lot of unique features that my kids had never seen, and they were way excited about them. We are going to try and go there when we need a good sledding hill! It seems like the perfect spot. I'll let ya know 😉
I need your help. I'm a former Swiss 🇨🇭 cross-country skier (female, 35 years old) and I'll work in #soldierhollow until October 4th.
But I need ideas for the weekend. Do you have a suggestion for me or even better can I join you?
I'm in #hebercity and have a mountain bike and running shoes but no car and no driving license 🙁 and my English still needs to be improved 😏
Any suggestions and ideas are welcome. In return I'll give you real Swiss chocolate 😉😋 Thanks for your help

take me back to this view.. back to 102 degrees, backpack straps rubbing against my shoulders, an old blown out pair of running shoes, 4 miles up 4 miles down, 2000 feet up in elevation, peanut butter sandwiches, hiking down in pitch black being guided by flashlights and a good buddy @michaelli_wyo along for the adventure.. some of the best views I've ever experienced
I keep finding myself reminiscing on all the moments this summer, all the crazy adventures and amazing people I got to spend it with. I'll start looking forward to more fall/winter adventures soon.. but for right now that scene in the rearview mirror is looking pretty good
If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low
I'll go wherever you will go🎶🎶
