I started backpacking just a few years ago on my 43rd birthday. I was hooked immediately and love going backpacking whenever I can!
Tomorrow Tom and I are leaving for a 4 day backpacking trip to the beautiful Upper Calf Creek Falls in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Wilderness of Southern Utah. The area where we will backpack to is just below about a mile of slickrock into a paradise of all sorts of wonderful plant and animal life. The trail is the stream where fish skirt around your ankles as you hike through the beauty of the canyon.
This experience will be my “education” for the next four days as I remind myself of the beautiful surroundings in which I am fortunate enough to live.
I’ll be sure to post photos upon my return.
Here are two photos from our trip there a few years ago:
