Three Days of R&R (Apr 2023)

I've been itching to get out of California for a while now. Over the last 16 months, a full 15 of my 24 trips have been to the Golden State, and I'm starting to miss the variety offered by places like Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming. Of course, the high elevations and northern reaches are still snowed in, but there's never a shortage of amazing hiking and exploration to be done in the Grand Gulch and Cedar Mesa area So, with a few days to burn, I'm headed out in search of history.

With more than 30 miles of trails, it'd be a literal marathon of R&R - Rock art and Ruins!

A full day of hiking (I'd covered more than 16 miles), after only a few hours of sleep (about five), meant that I knocked out a full three minutes of reading…

      It is still on the way, just need to get through the backlog of trips I'm currently posting before I get to post this one. So, that means that as of right now, I'm working through the following two trip reports:

      1. My First Time in Joshua Tree
      2. Rock Art Three Ways

      I should note - I was originally planning to do this trip before the Rock Art Three Ways trip, but weather in Utah conspired (read: snowed) otherwise!
