Rest Days

We left Vegas to get away from the bad weather, but it turned out to be pretty crappy everywhere in this part of the country.  We decided a few days of rest probably wouldn't be a bad idea though, so we could be fresh when we started climbing at our next stop.

We spent a couple of nights in Moab, and though the weather wasn't really conducive to climbing, it was good enough to go hiking.  We checked out some cool areas we missed when we were in the area last year.  First up was the Fiery Furnace area of Arches National Park.


It's a pretty amazing area, full of cool spires and narrow canyons.



Of course even when we are just hiking, we can't seem to stop doing at least some climbing.


Next up we went to check out The Needles area of Canyonlands National Park, another area with spectacular scenery.



We went on several small hikes, which led us through some of the amazing history of the area, including old cowboy camps and various relics of the native Pueblos.



 

We've been in Indian Creek now for a few days.  Despite the fact that the weather still hasn't been all that cooperative we have managed to get some climbing in.  The crack climbing feels as intimidating and burly as the last time we were here.  But oh so much fun!
