Sloppy + muddy

So read the ranger's sign summarizing conditions for the hike Scott and I had traveled out for from Portland to the desert canyon country of southwestern Utah. We started the trip by flying to Las Vegas, the closest airport to this remote area. I'd never seen the sights of Vegas so we stayed in the Westin just off the strip the night we flew in. It didn't take long to realize Vegas wasn't really my scene.

Paria Canyon

Over the Easter weekend my friend Scott and I got away from rainy Portland. We flew to Las Vegas and then drove to southwestern Utah to explore some canyon country. We first stopped in Zion National Park before heading on an overnight camping trip through Buckskin Gulch and Paria Canyon.
