Coyote Gulch 2008

Some pictures of me and Ashley’s trip to Coyote gulch.  This was quite an adventure complete with danger and horror.  But a great time was had for all, and we will go again……maybe.









At the trail head.  



first night on the rim.  it was too windy to set up a tent, or cook our dinner for that matter.

our second camp. we were visited this night by several canyon creatures.  All I can tell you is that 2 yellow eyes peeking under your tent flap at 3am is a little unnerving.

IMGP1606 good thing Ashley had that knife!  Ok,we never actually used it, but we could have, and that made me feel nice.


                                                 this place is just crazy pretty.

IMGP1622 So to get out of the canyon you have to climb this 45 degree cliff that is about 100 ft.  Not that big of a deal, but this family from Salt Lake was scared to death, I sat at the top and belayed them up while Ashley was at the bottom putting them in harnesses and convincing them that they were not going to die.   Since we didnt plan on this, we ran out of water, and got CRAZY sun burnt sitting on that cliff for 3 hours.  But they were very grateful and shared their water while we made the 3 mile hike back to our cars.  We got back waaaaay later than we planned, so of course we were presumed dead.  

We stayed that night at the Calf Creek Falls campground, and came home the next morning.  We did however have some serious car trouble in Mona and Ryan was quite unhappy about coming to rescue us.

Anyway, we are alive and had a great time!

You look so cute in all those pics, I on the other hand look like a dangerous bum!
