Plans for May

It begins!

First of all, since I'm excited about it, I bought some new hiking shoes; now I have no choice but to use them!  They are called Merrell Moab Waterproof Hiking Shoes, and they are so comfy! I've never owned a pair of hiking shoes before and so far I'm impressed.

I'm planning on walking in these. 

The Adventure

Okay, enough about me. On May 8th and 9th we are starting off our Utah adventure by heading to Bryce Canyon and Calf Creek Falls, which is right outside Escalante National Forest.

Bryce Canyon

We are going to hit up the Navajo Loop and Queen's Garden Trail about mid-afternoon so we can be there for the sunset. There is point along the trail called sunset point, here you have a perfect view of the sunset and the rest of Bryce Canyon, apparently the sunset is supposed to look pretty spectacular here.  

The highest rock on the right is called, Thor's Hammer.

Depending on conditions we might camp over night or we will hit up a motel in the town of Tropic that isn't too far off. Of course I'm leaning more toward camping, which would be a lot more cheaper. 

Calf Creek Falls

Calf Creek Falls is just a little bit east from Bryce Canyon which is why we decided to do this in the same trip, that way we don't have to drive all the way back down south just to hike 6 miles. Once we are done here we will be driving back to Salt Lake City. 

Oh, by the way, did I mention this looks AWESOME??

What's Next?

The week after we are planning on a hike somewhere here in Salt Lake. It doesn't really matter where, so I'm not gonna plan any of these hikes, we're just gonna wing it! 

Tiana is leaving for Texas at the end of the month so I haven't made any plans for the rest of May. But I would be down to do something if anyone has any ideas! 

Come With Us!

Again, the more the merrier! Let me know if you want to go and we will figure out driving arrangements. Make sure to ask for the 8th and the 9th off!
