This Spring Break I decided to mix it up a bit, trade in my kayak for a canoe, and do some exploring and hiking in Canyonlands National Park.

 

We arrived in Moab after a monster day of driving and an awesome breakfast at my Aunt Judy's in Salt Lake City. (Thanks Jude!) To stretch our legs from the drive we went for a quick hike, then it was off to organize everyone and everything for the next 7 days on the Stillwater Canyon section of the Green River.

The trip began with a class five shuttle, putting in at Spring Canyon.  It continued with crazy weather including rain, snow, sun and some super charged wind.  The wind was so strong at times it created huge wind waves, making it feel a little more like whitewater and a little more like home to me.

The river was great with beautiful wilderness scenery, red walls, Anasazi ruins and art, and even an outlaw cabin!  The best part, though, were the side hikes....amazing!
