Hiking the Roadside Ruin in Canyonlands

Just beyond the Needles District Visitor Center (open daily 8AM to 6PM but closed early December through February) is the Roadside Ruin Trail. It’s the first official trail in the National Park you’ll come across and – because it’s nice and easy – is a great place to get out of your car to give your legs a stretch before…

Hike the Lathrop Trail in Canyonlands

If you’re heading into Canyonlands National Park‘s Island in the Sky District and looking for a good introduction to the scenery that awaits you, this partial route on the Lathrop Trail is an excellent place to start.

Newspaper Rock State Historic Monument

Newspaper Rock is located just outside the entrance to the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park in Indian Creek – a BLM region popular with rock climbers. It’s a short walk from the roadside parking and is one of the largest-known collections of petroglyphs in the country. There are more than 650 individual glyphs carved into the desert varnish, and…

Hike the Mesa Arch Trail

Mesa Arch is, undeniably, one of the spotlight attractions in the Island in the Sky District of Canyonlands National Park. Like, say, Yosemite’s Bridalveil Falls, it’s off the main road and a short, easy hike – but its ease of access should not deter you from visiting – even if you see a bunch of cars at the trailhead. The…

Hike the Upheaval Dome Overlook in Canyonlands

I think the Colorado Plateau region is one of – if not the most geologically spectacular places I’ve ever been. Everywhere you look, you can see billions of years of history at a glance, with the terrain and the life that inhabits it often twisted into strange shapes you could best describe as “otherworldly.” But no matter how many strange…

Grand View Point  Canyonlands

Hiking Grand View Point in Canyonlands National Park

It’s no secret that Canyonlands National Park straddles some truly stunning territory. There are also no shortage of places to get stunning views of the canyons cut by the Colorado and Green Rivers – in many places you can just pull your car over at the side of the road and see something that’s going to probably stay with you…

Dear readers – you all are great! We’re getting tons of submissions for our Photo Friday contests these days and I have to say that getting to look through them is quickly becoming a favorite part of my week. I wanted to try something new, so in addition to this week’s four winners getting a discount code from our good…

Stonewall Peak

Hike Stonewall Peak

Cuyamaca Rancho State Park boasts an embarrassment of natural riches, including lakes, streams, springs, mesas, the largest deer herd in the county, multiple flocks of wild turkeys, seemingly infinite hiking opportunities, and, of course, a quartet of easily accessible, 5,000′+ peaks (Cuyamaca, Middle, Stonewall, and Oakzanita). Of the four, the popular Stonewall Peak Trail is the most accessible while offering…

Raw Revolution Bars

Product Review – Raw Revolution Bars

Say what you will about diet crazes (and then wait six months to say it again about the next fad), but I think one of the prime benefits of the paleo and raw movements is the push for simple, natural ingredients in things. One of the reasons I like taking Lärabars with me on hikes (besides the deliciousness) is that…
