Happy New Year. We hope 2014 has been a good year for you, and that 2015 is even better. Hope you fill it with epic adventures.
This blog is my last one for utah.com. That company about to launch some new, bigger, better initiatives and my blog will be discontinued. So, this is my farewell post.
While you won't see my ramblings here, I'll still be out there in the backcountry. Maybe I'll meet you on the trail.
With the economy continuing to improve, and with gas prices falling, 2015 will be a year to travel, enjoy new activities and experience wonderful destinations. Where to go? I'm sure every person's list will be different. Mine will be heavy on hiking, backpacking, boating and fishing.
Here's mine, heavy on hiking, backpacking, boating and fishing. These are adventures I actually plan to enjoy during the coming months.
- Snowmobile Cedar Mountain, just north of Zion Park, including some trails that overlook park backcountry.
- Photo safari to The Wave. I've been there once and had a great time. I'd like to shoot it again, now that I'm a better photographer.
- Backpack Coyote Gulch, in Grand Staircase-Escalante. I've done many hikes in that area but have not yet done this epic multi-day trek.
- Explore and fish the San Juan arm of Lake Powell. I've ventured into the upper and lower reaches of that arm, but there are many canyon's I've yet to explore. Often, the best fishing on the lake is up that direction.
- Explore Chaco, Canyon de Chelly and other ancient Native American centers just across the border, along with more the remote ruins in Utah.
- Find golden trout in the Uinta Mountains. The elusive little fish have been re-introduced into the Uintas and they are doing well.
- Canyoneer Zion's Subway again. It is one of my all time favorites and I have a few more people I'd like to take there.
- Photo safari to Yosemite. I love photographing waterfalls and I've heard that park has some dandy's...
I'll work in minor adventures between these epic trips. While I won't be reporting them here, I'll still be posting stuff online.
