27 May

Five days “roughin” it in a tent in Kane Creek Canyon. Nine hour detour up through the Yampa River valley. Two sweaty, hot runs through red rock canyons, along the Colorado River. One shower at a gas station. One incredible bouldering expedition along “Wall Street“. Three dogs, eight “adults”. Five hours of cliff-jumping at the Mill Creek swimming hole. One hatchet incident…oh and one cactus incident. Two jeepin’ trips–Hurrah Pass and Potash Road up into Canyonlands. Two National Parks and one State Park in two days–Canyonlands, Arches, and Dead Horse. One SPECTACULAR sunset atop Hurrah Pass–complete with a personal skim from a prop plane. Numerous thieving crows. Far too many thirst-quenching Banquets and PBRs. One HUGE full moon. Endless evenings of laughter, under bright stars and glowing canyon walls.



Spent four days camping in Moab with some of Keystone’s best. Fondly known as “Colorado’s playground”, Moab didn’t disappoint. 90°, non-stop sun, hiking, running, biking, red dirt, swimming holes, bonfires, arches, and vibrant desert colors were exactly what the doctor ordered after the incessant snow and cold that we’ve experienced this spring in Summit County. Occasionally you are fortunate enough to have an experience that breaks down all boundaries and exceeds all expectations. Well Moab did just that. Can’t wait for next year.
