Greetings All

This is a blog from my latest trip to Utah. We spend 8 days hiking, biking and Camping through the national parks.

Canyonlands NP was amazing, incredible views of the canyons with over a kilometer drop off down to the rivers below. It is also home of the Mesa Arch one of the most beautiful and photographed arches in the world.

One of he highlights was the wild camping site that we found at Big Bend down on the banks of the Colorado River. Watching the sun set over they canyons and due to its remoteness the night sky was breathtaking (although I need to work on my star photography). Waking up on the banks of the Colorado river under bright blue skies was a highlight of the trip

Why not photo of you stood on the big rock...?
It looks incredible, such amazing scenery. How long did it take to hike from the bottom to the top? But how come you didn't stand on the big rock for a photo?

Erm I have a family
It was pretty sketchy as there is a 1000Ft drop on both sides and you have to jump down onto it. I have 2 kids and a wife......plus not great with heights, Robbo was bricking it when he jumped back up as one slip and he had a long falllllllllllllll.........splat

The stars Photo it was a long exposure hence the movement in some of them. Yes it was pretty cold when the sun was not out, there was still some snow patches in the shade. There was not a lot of wildlife about, I wanted to see some rattle snakes but it was still to cold
