This was just a good ol time in Southern Utah exploring some new trail with a couple of my cool brothers. We went on Fri afternoon and hit up some slot canyon action in Yankee Doodle slot out of Leeds. Hairdog helped keep us alive on the first 100 foot free hanging rappel and then navigation through a water filled slot. Few bangs and scraps but its good for the soul.
Next day...run day. Oreo mapped out a route that ended up 22 plus miles on a scorching hot 87 degree (I think hotter in some sections) day. This is primarily a mountain bike used trail and we passed a fair number of them. We started up Hurricane Rim trail then after a bit of a out and back, hooked into the JEM trail then Goulds trail and Goulds rim to finish off the loop. This was a cool one with good company and just the kind of butt kicker I was looking for. There were some low moments in energy and I think I lost all the salt I had in my system. Cool landscape, Zions vistas in the background, lizards everywhere, . Will try to get some pictures up sometime. Awesome day!
