The canyon country of Southern Utah is our favorite destination for a springtime backpack. Since 1980, one or both of us has returned almost every year to explore the hidden treasures this country has to offer.We have done a lot more backpacking trips than are listed here. Also, we are expanding our coverage to include more recent day hiking trips. If there is some area in which you are particularly interested, let us know, and we may be able to provide some advice or guidance. We get requests all the time.
