This weekend I could only squeeze in a day hike this Sunday. Not for any terrible reasons, but a project I’m working on is almost at the end. And I have a deadline on Monday. 🙂 But I needed to get in a hike.
So I went hiking in Lower Courthouse Wash. An out and back of about 11 miles or so. One of the few narrower canyons in Arches, this canyon has no official trail. But a well-worn use path connects the wash from the heart of Arches to Moab Canyon off state HWY 191.
A lush canyon esp . in this year of 150%+ snowpack. The spring wildflowers are blooming, streams are flowing, I saw some turkeys, and even spotted a blue heron.
The day out proved to be a perfect hike during a hectic time.
