Bryce to Bears Ears Video Series

I know I’ve been MIA for a while, but…

…now I’m back AND I’m finally ready to share my latest video series! It covers my spring backpacking trip where I hiked for about 30 days and 500 miles across southern Utah from Bryce Canyon National Park to Bears Ears. The series is my most extensive to date showcasing some incredible and diverse landscapes and my usual “unique” insight on how to hike one’s own hike (ie my jokes and singing are “unique” right?! 😉) It really was a great trip in many ways and I’m excited to share it with everyone.

The first episode is now live on YouTube and focuses on the beginning in Bryce and features the Peek-a-boo Loop Trail, the Under-the-Rim Trail, the Grand View Trail through Dixie National Forest, and some cross-country exploration near Willis Creek and upper Bull Valley Gorge.

Look for new videos in the series twice a week throughout October. It took about a month to hike it… and now it’ll take about a month to see it all! 😉

Thanks for following along! 👍

  1. That was fun to watch! Some really amazing geology there. I’d heard that Bryce shut down a few campsites due to bear activity so am glad you didn’t have to deal with them. I’m looking forward to the upcoming episodes.

    • Thanks! Yeah… that’s why I decided to get WAY OUTSIDE the park to camp! I still have yet to see an actual bear in Utah. I guess the campsite closure in Bryce was fairly cautionary — bear spotted on camera near the backcountry camp, but it didn’t have any interaction with humans (at least that was one account I saw.) Hope all is good for you.

  2. My son and I watched the first episode last night! Incredible footage and insight (as usual).

  3. Thanks for the new story Jamal! It popped up for me today and really helped me, been sick nasty cold and this lifted my spirits! Looking forward to the entire trip!
