25 Mile Wash Escalante Utah

25 Mile Wash canyon can be a long day hike or 
multi-night journey. Drying mud patterns
are most attracting to the eyes as rock layers on 
canyon walls change down river.
The first three miles in 25 Mile Wash, from "Egypt" road,
 decisions were made to get muddy or plow-thru Willows.
See Lower 25 Mile Wash to Fox Canyon and our choices of steps.

Escalante Canyon Utah Sounds of Spring


We spent two nights, March 15 & 16, backpacking 15 miles down the Escalante Canyon, Utah. The birds called, we navigated over thick ice banks along Escalante's river banks and caught some warm rays and few rain showers. Escalante Partners Program, piled downed Russian Olive trees in clumps (on land) for easy traveling through the Canyon. Great camping at the confluence of Dead Hollow creek, where we pumped sediment-free water. Large fish darted up and down Dead Hollow creek. The second night we camped at Sand Creek where a clean spring gave us our drinking water, no filtration needed. Cache ruins still sit near Escalante's Natural Bridge. 
Listen to the sounds of Escalante Canyon and watch the springtime changes.
