we just completed an awe inspiring 3 week trip through southern utah and colorado. The highlight of our trip was mesa verde national park and the museum they have there. If you are interested in any way to the Native Americans through Anza borrego desert Mesa Verde is like New York City of the day and a must visit.







One of the main reasons for this post was the minerals they had in the museum the Indians used for rock art

and corrugated pottery!

the tools were really cool too! It was super nice visiting in the off season because there was no body there!




Some other cool sites along the way included......

Zion National park

Bryce Canyon smile

a two day hold out in escalante, ut watching the snow fall for 48 straight hours!

Capitol Reef National park


Canyonlands National Park

Wow, what a trip. Great time of year to visit too! Looks like maybe you got some pizza at Escalante Outfitters when you were snowed in?

Alex and I did a great backpack through Death Hollow a couple of years ago:

Temps were in the low 20's. Not too bad. The heater was cranking through the night and drained the batteries pretty good. I need to get a catalytic heater so it does not impact my battery situation. During the snow storm I couldn't believe my solar panel was charging, although I had to stay on the roof with a broom keeping the panel free from snow.

Escalante' Ut was totally shut down! We checked in to the Prospectors Inn and there was not one restaurant open. The entire town lost power for almost 24 straight hours I kept eyeballing the outfitters for some pizza and beer but they never opened upset It was a wild experience. There was a group of hikers that had to be rescued and ended up staying the night in the hotel. The truck handled great in the snow. With the weight of the camper and new tires I never put it in 4x4.
