The Maze

Glowing Cottonwood

I just returned from ten days in Utah, mostly spent exploring and adventuring in The Maze district of Canyonlands National Park. My companions were my good friends Guy Tal and Steve Cole, and together we explored deep canyons and exposed rims and ridges; visited ancient rock art left by the natives; and lost ourselves in the silence and remoteness of this magical place. Not surprisingly, re-entry into civilization and daily life has since been difficult.

The Maze is still considered one of the more remote places in North America, due to the difficulty of access (one must either have a 4WD and challenging off-road driving experience, or be prepared to walk or mountain bike upwards of twenty-five miles from where the easy roads cease). I’ll be posting photos from my trip over the next couple of weeks, so please stay tuned to this blog for more.
