early spring and that means time to go do some canyon hiking to look
for ruins and rock art.
So, about ten days ago, my friend Alan and I headed down to Natural Bridges National Monument for a couple of days. We set up a base camp on Cedar Mesa at a spot I’ve used often, with a view of the Bears Ears.
Day One, Kachina to Owachomo
From there, we left the next couple of mornings to go hike the canyons on Natural Bridges. The first day we went in via the Kachina bridge trail and exited via Owachomo then road walked back to the Jeep.
Pictures from day one.
Back at camp we enjoyed some fabulous steaks with sauteed peppers, mushrooms and onion around a nice little campfire.
Day Two, Sipapu
The next day, we were back, goin in via Sipapu this time.
We hiked a long way on this day, over 15 miles, but the payoff was that we got into a lot of cool stuff.
All Good Things Must Come To An End
the weekend went! Too quickly! It was really nice to get out and
get some fresh air and exercise. Can’t wait to do it again!
