Backpacking Cassidy Arch

Cassidy Arch is among the most popular landmarks to hike to in Capitol Reef National Park. Most people choose to make it a simple day hike considering that it's only about 1.75 miles from the nearest trailhead in Grand Wash.  Jessica and I opted to take a longer way and then spend a night nearby in the Capitol Reef backcountry.

We actually planned to do the loop I did solo last year over two nights while the kids stayed with their grandparents up the road, but the weather forecast gave us cause to make the trip a one night affair instead.  So, we made it an out'n'back trip that featured a visit to Cassidy Arch.

Spring Break 2016 - Southeast Utah

Once again, we were blessed to take advantage of the kids' spring break from school.  This year's travels would take us to Southeastern Utah where we enjoyed two nights of camping, some hiking, visits to indian ruins, petroglyph panels, a pioneer fort, Four Corners, and more.
