Hello Again — remember me?
I’ve been a bit quiet this “off season”, but I have been doing some stuff behind the scenes and even managed to squeeze in an early season hike. In early April I did a 9-day, 120-ish mile hike down Buckskin Gulch and the Lower Paria and then back across the Paria Plateau. I was fortunate to grab a canceled permit for this area and thus jumped at the opportunity. I have a bunch of content from this hike and plan to make a video (or two), BUT… that’ll have to wait for a while! There’s a gallery of somewhat low-res video frame grabs below as a preview though.
The reason the Paria video/content will have to wait is… I’m getting ready to set out on an even bigger hike! On May 1st I’ll begin another point-to-point hike trekking about 500 miles from Zion to Green River over the course of about 30 days. Like usual my route will include a lot of new-to-me segments as well as some old favorites. I plan to use my inReach sparingly on this trip, but you might see occasional check-ins via:
(you may need to set date/time to ALL in order to see new content)
Otherwise I also might post small updates as I go via my Instagram account when I have a connection — so make sure to follow along there if you like. Otherwise look for a bunch of new content here later this summer!
For those wondering, YES I do also still plan on answering all those post-hike questions submitted after my Bryce to Bears Ears Hike. I actually hope to record some of those answers along the way while out on this new journey and then possibly make a separate video just for that. But… we will see how things go. Seldom does everything go like I plan it out and the last few years have included many curveballs, so… we will just have to wait and see where I end up and how/what I actually do re: content.
Until then… Cheers! 🌞🍻
