Description

Call me impulsive, but sometimes I’ll visit a location after seeing only a single photo of the place. In May 2011 I decided to backpack through Coyote Gulch, Utah, thanks to a spectacular shot of the place by photographer Michael Anderson. This was my first southwest backpacking experience and it did not disappoint: The gulch was rife with soaring walls, massive amphitheaters, gigantic rock arches, and even a number of waterfalls. What made the experience truly unique was the backpacking itself. There was hardly a trail, per se, but rather all the hiking was done in the sandy-bottomed wash that flowed through the canyon. It’s hard to beat hiking barefoot in 80° water through a southwest desert paradise.
