Beautiful Utah

Wave

To celebrate Independence Day, me and Liz are taking a few days off work, and heading into the desert. We’ll be camping out near Kanab, Utah, and we’re hoping to make it to the rock formation shown in the photo. It’s actually the reason we’re going, Liz heard about it through a magazine and was fascinated. It’s so delicate, the BLM only allow twenty hikers a day to visit. Since we didn’t book ahead, we’re hoping we’ll get lucky in the lottery for the ten permits they release on the day before.

We’re camping at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, which looks like it has some amazing sights, before heading on to the main town. For the camp fires, I’ve picked up a flint and steel fire lighting kit. It’s not in the same league as starting fires by rubbing sticks together, but at least this will make me feel a bit more like Bear Grylls!
