Spring Break Recon

Last week I was scheduled to go backpacking with a friend through Zion National Park, but that fell through.  Since I still had the days off, I began to make plans to do some backpacking in Grand Gulch, but Jessica suggested I wait.  That lead to an opportunity to take my three-year-old son, Lennox, out for a father-son adventure, since he's not yet in school, to do a bit of reconnaissance on some road conditions, campsites, and hiking trails for our upcoming spring break trip I've been planning for the rest of the family.

Rochester Panel

On the way home from a weekend trip to Torrey last month, we took a different way home for a change.  Along the way was a well known petroglyph panel known as the Rochester Panel.  I think it compares with Newspaper Rock as far as the concentration of glyphs go.

Seven Kivas

Last month my Jessica and I were able to spend a day down in Cedar Mesa hiking out to a few different sites. Some secret, some not so secret.  This one is not so secret.

A Quick Overnighter at Cedar Mesa

Blake, the same friend I went up to Middle Basin with last year, recently found some free time on his schedule and reached out to see if I wanted to shoot down south for a quick overnight trip.  At first we were looking at San Rafael Swell, but at the last minute, I suggested Cedar Mesa and it was ultimately agreed upon.
