The weekend of 14 Jan 11, Tracy and I had a really cool trip down to Moab.  On Saturday, we

headed up to Canyonlands Field airport, where we took a scenic flight over southern Utah.

This was really cool.  We had a pilot and a little 4 seater single prop plane, and we flew south-

east from Moab over the Green River, Horseshoe Canyon, Robber's Roost, the Henry

Mountains, Lake Powell, and back up to The Maze, The Needles, and back to Moab.  Here's a

tracklog of the flight.  This was a very nice thing for us, because I was able to find three or four

locations that I wasn't familiar with, and now I want to go check them out.  It was also nice to

see places that we had hiked, and to see the area around it from the air.  This flight certainly

re-energized me on wanting to explore parts of southern Utah that are much harder to get to.  I

also took a couple of videos of the take-off from Bullfrog, and flying over the Colorado River.

After returning, we spent the afternoon just outside of Moab practicing our technical

canyoneering skills on an area cliff.  We spent the night in Moab.

On Sunday we headed down to Lake Powell to check out some areas that we had seen from

the air the day before.  For some reason, I don't seem to have taken any pictures that day, but

I don't want to link to where we were, anyway...this was a very cool place, and I want to keep it

to myself as much as I can!

We spent the night in Hanksville, and then headed out to the Swell, and we did the Little

Wildhorse / Bell Canyon Loop (Yahoo Map).  I had hiked the trail once before, but Tracy had

never hiked it.  We had a great hike here, and we had it completely to ourselves.  This is a

really good slot canyon that's not too hard to hike, and it's easy to get to.  There were

surveyors out on the road that day, so I hope they're not planning on paving the road...that

would make it even more popular.

Anyway, great trip.  I love southern Utah.
