Buckskin Gulch and Paria Canyon Trip Report


This will be quick with a much more detailed write up tomorrow. In one word: GREAT! It was one of the best trips I have done. Buckskin Gulch is a must do hike and Paria Canyon is awesome.

On Monday Kathy and I found a route that climbs out of Paria Canyon. The photo shows where we had lunch some 800 feet above the canyon floor! The route was a class 3 climb with lots of exposure, but it was fantastic. Normally this would be no big deal, but doing it in wet water shoes made it challenging! More tomorrow.
