Coyote Gulch Backpacking Trip

20 Oct

Well, I went into this trip hoping to remove the bitter taste our last backpacking trip left me with (what, carrying 50 pounds straight up a billion mountains doesn’t sound like fun?), and we succeeded.  To say this trip was memorable would be an understatement.  The kids are still talking about it and asking when we can go back (when you start carrying your own packs, slackers).  We were accompanied by 3 uncles, 2 cousins, 1 aunt and 1 grandpa from both of our families – what a party.  Writing cannot do this trip justice, so here’s a million pictures so you can see why this truly is Andrew’s favorite place on earth!

So beautiful.  So fun.  So worth it.  And don’t worry, the kids are just downing their celebratory IBC root beer at the end 🙂

    It’s in Southern Utah between Escalante and Lake Powell. It’s a drive, but so worth it (occasionally)
