Tomorrow I hope to get down to Zion and do Imlay Canyon, the canyon of all canyons, this very Saturday...Unfortunately, the weather forcast is pretty dismal looking, and any chance of rain would shut me down. I've done Imlay only once before, 2 years ago with Dan Myers. I have since done quite a few canyons, leading all but one of them, and I feel ready to take two of my friends through this adventure. I'll post a pic of our trip when its over.

Imlay Canyon

Sierra and I hiked Talyor Creek last week up to the "Double Arch Alcove", which actually doesn't even have one real arch. We left early, and made it there and almost back before the first of the crowds got there, and in the last fifteen minutes of our hiking we probably passed about 25 people on their way to the same spot. I also went a little ways (about a mile) up the canyon which is next in line to the south of this one, just to explore. It looks like a real winner, but I told Sierra I would be back in 15 minutes, and I can only jog so fast...

Eli really loved this hike, and I am excited for a summer full of trips with him to the most beautiful places on the earth, or at least the most beautiful places in Utah. Maybe Eli would like Imlay Canyon...? ;)

Flip Time

Last week Josh Heck and I were almost to the top of squaw peak, when time cut us off. Our wives wanted us home within about 20 minutes of this picture. Those who know where we are know this is possible but only by sprinting down the entire way...Anyhow, we couldn't let a good opportunity go to waste. Josh actually did a backflip, but I don't want to look less cool than him, hence no picture:) (actually his sweatshirt makes him look like an upside-down blur, and I have to get to class right now, so I'm jost not posting it...)

The Y Mount

John B Hoyt and I climbed Y mountain this Saturday in just about 2 hours. At first we were headed straight up the west face, but came to a tricky spot and decided to cut around to the south face and just take the easy walk to the top. The first pic is coming around the corner between the two faces, and the second is on the top of the mountain. You can see a pretty good storm cloud on Mount Nebo in the background.
