Banff and Jasper

Want to fill up a 32GB memory card with pictures? Then take a trip to Banff and Jasper National Parks. The mountains and glaciers and lakes and rivers will leave you inspired.

Coyote Gulch

Coyote Gulch is a classic southern Utah backpacking trip. The desert walking, the arches, and the deep canyon work together to make this one of the best backpacking trips in southern Utah.

Happy Canyon

Amazing views of the Dirty Devil River and Robber's Roost, mounds of petrified wood, and a nice slot canyon make Happy Canyon an outstanding hike.

Needles

The Needles District of Canyonlands National Park offers some of the best backpacking in southern Utah. I have found many hidden gems throughout this area that have left me awe struck.

It's hard to find a bad hike anywhere in the Rockies of western Wyoming, and the Gros Ventre Wilderness is no exception.
