I visited a friend in Moab, saw some unique pictographs, enjoyed Arches National Park in the off-season, and wondered how the government shutdown would affect my trip.
Four days of backpacking and an additional day of hiking and camping exploring the Ancient Puebloan culture in (what is for now) the Bears Ears National Monument at the Cedar Mesa and Grand Gulch areas.
One last post for my Utah walk. Songs stuck in my head while being out by myself. Call it a bonus post.
A summary of my Walk Across Southern Utah. More information about the route, resupply, water, permits, gear, etc.
The final days of my walk from Moab to the Colorado border.
Another memorable stretch on my Utah journey. Culminating with a crossing of the Colorado River.
The route is taking me north. And into places I fondly recall.
The midpoint of my Southern Utah journey has been reached.
I now have entered Utah’s red rock canyon country. And it has been phenomenal.
My first few days on my Walk Across Southern Utah.
