Desert Indian paintbrush
Most Indian paintbrush we saw grew is small short clumps, often mixed in with prickly pear cactus. Here a large patch of bright red blossoms could be seen for a 100 yards, coming up the wash.

The alarm went off at 4 am and by 5 am we had our backpacks loaded in the back of our pickup truck and we were on our way to the trailhead. We chose the easy, scenic and popular Hurricane Wash approach into Coyote Gulch. The trailhead is located a little over 33 miles down the miserable washboard laden “hole in the rock” road, which in turn is located between milepost 64 & 65 on highway 12 north of Escalante, Utah.
It took us almost two hours to bounce our way to the trailhead. At 7 am we had our backpacks on and the sun made its first appearance over the countryside to the east of us, just as we started down Hurricane Wash.
In the narrow canyon portion of Hurricane a few raven would glide over our heads, checking out our “food supply” opportunities. They would be welcome, and ever present company for the rest of this two day backpacking trip.
It took us four hours of steady but slow hiking to arrive at our selected campsite on the down canyon, “toe” section of Jacob Hamblin arch. It was an ideal place to camp with the exception of if rain was a possibility. It was not high enough to be exempt from a fast rise in creek level, yet there was a downstream exit available, should that happen.
There was no foliage at the camp and not bugs. You could say it was located in a humongous alcove, which could easily be viewed as a monstrous “cave”. It gave us a window to the sky (especially beautiful at night), and no need for a rain fly, as we were completely protected from above by the huge alcove.
1/4 mile down canyon was the view up through Jacob Hamblin Arch. A few hundred feet farther down the canyon was a nice “outhouse”. Upstream (and a favorite place for me to wade barefoot) was the view down through Jacob Hamblin arch. In short, we couldn’t have found a more pleasing place to camp and oh the night sky views through the “hole in the roof” of the deep canyon.
Once set up and everything in order at our “alcove camp”, we loaded up the light small day packs we had brought in, for a day hike down canyon. This time, I made sure I had both the Canon G9 and the G10 with me as we headed down stream. The highlight of the down canyon hike was Coyote Natural Bridge. We hiked about 2.5 miles down the canyon that afternoon (near Cliff Arch) and I took several scrambling climbs up into side canyons and alcoves, while my wife relaxed along the creek bottom.
By the time we returned from our 5 mile day hike, it was time to fix dinner, take a few more photos, visit, and get the tent ready for bed. I want to thank Chad Rosenstine for introducing us to the REI three legged backpacking stools. They are light weight, easy to pack AND unbelievably handy around a backpacking camp. No sitting on hard rocks, logs with stubs, or flat on the ground. Face any of three directions easily, store small items in the triangular cloth stool leg support, and most of all, put on and take off, hiking shoes - - with ease. We ended up packing our backpacks so these handy stools could be quickly accessed for a “rest break” while backpacking out the next day.
We both slept very well that night.

Our backpacking hike back up Coyote Gulch and then up Hurricane Wash, was uneventful but enjoyable. We thought, since it would be hot that day and the route was not “up” instead of “down” canyon, that it might take us a lot longer, but it didn’t. Four hours out, same as the time into camp the day before.
We had thought about retrieving our stored belongings at the Circle “D” and then heading on to our next destination (Rattlesnake Canyon Arches in Western Colorado), but we were dirty, tired, and another night at the Circle “D” sounded really good, so the moment we arrived at the motel, I asked Robert if he had space for us for one more night. He did (same room #7), so I got the room key and got back into our truck and got ready to drive it over to park it in front of our room.
Rattle rattle rattle. Rattle rattle rattle. Our truck wouldn’t start. I had waited one start too many to replace a very old battery and the shaking the truck took on the way out of the hole in the rock road, had pretty much taken care of the old positive post battery clamp. I don’t need to tell you how fortunate we both felt. The “last start” could have easily been at mile 33.7 down the hole in the rock road. Ugh.
Well, as you often find in a small town, we got nothing but help, especially from manager Robert (who had stored our stuff for us). In less than an hour, Don, at the repair shop behind the 66 gas station at town, had us fitted out with not only a new fully charged battery, but a new battery terminal clamp as well. We were set…….and more than a little lucky.
We packed all of our backpacking gear into duffle bags and stored it in
You got to be kidding !

I stepped out of my motel room with a few of my duffle bags all ready to pack in Ed's Jeep, when this sight greeted me. I returned to my room and got my camera. Plans change fast on road trips, and this weather certainly changed ours.
Looking back now though, on the entire 12 day road trip we had been fortunate in so many ways and now the dust storms, the flying tumbleweeds, and then snow storms all bring a smile to my face.
Sometimes on hikes and road trips, it is the things that don't turn out as expected that bring the most smiles (after the fact). Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

I got up before dawn as usual (anxious to get going on the next day’s adventures), as did Ed. We stepped outside our motel rooms at the Circle “D”, in Escalante, Utah…at about the same time to the same scene. Unbelievable. Snow. Neither of us had heard a hint of a forecast for this, so it was a total and complete surprise.
Our plans for day 11 had included a considerable number of interesting dirt road routes in the Escalante area, particularly suited to Ed’s Jeep Wrangler. That was not going to happen. When signs in the area state “Impassable when wet”, they aren’t kidding. Nothing slicker or more apt to clog your wheel wells than “Utah mud”. So we had no choice but to change plans.
We filled up the gas tank and had breakfast at the Escalante Subway (same place). The women working there told us that they had already seen the snow plows arriving, and that we shouldn’t worry about crossing the high point on to Torrey on highway 12. Well it snowed heavily on the route and wind was blowing it across the road and starting to drift. Nothing to keep the Jeep from moving on through it, but I was worried that officials might close the road until the temps warmed and the roads were properly plowed.
We stopped several places on our drive from Escalante to Torrey, as the snow storms and breaking blue spots in the sky, between storm fronts, made for some spectacular scenery. By the time we reached Hanksville, the weather was looking much better, lots of heavy wind, but out of the snow and for the moment, any rain.
We drove on to Goblin Valley State park. I had been here three or four times before and each and every time, the weather and conditions for photographing the “goblins” were poor. So now on this day with such a stormy beginning, Ed and I found lots of sun breaks and the conditions (other than the wind), were excellent for getting some goblin photos. In 2010 I experienced a true hail and then mud storm in the same area when I took my wife and two Flickr friends for a hike up to the Twin Windows Caves in the area.
After Goblin Valley along the San Rafael Swell, Ed and I had come very close to closing the large loop we had made on this road trip. When we drove past the Head of Sinbad rock art on I-70, the loop was done, and so were we. It was time to head home.
We drove on to Ogden, Utah and got rooms for the night for the last time on this road trip. Then next day (day 12), would bring us one more snow storm to drive through, then it was on to my home in Eastern Washington.
0 3,875 MILE/12 DAY ~ 4 CORNERS ROAD TRIP OVERVIEW 0
At the start of year 2011, I made tentative plans to take a two week solo “road trip” through the Four Corners area (The Colorado Plateau), during the last half of March. Then, if my wife could get the time needed off from her part time job, I also planned a “road trip” vacation to the Southwest, in April with her.
When I put the plan together for the March trip, I decided to see if an old friend of mine, Ed (Flickr’s: OldWrangler), might be interested in joining me. I volunteered to take my old four wheel drive pickup truck and split the gasoline expense with him. We would each get an inexpensive motel room on the road to serve as “base camps” to hike, photograph, and explore back roads in the Four Corners area.
Not only did Ed accept but he also proposed that we take his brand new 4-door Jeep Wrangler instead of my old pickup truck. That didn’t take any thinking on my part. I LOVE Jeeps and Ed and I have always got along well (decades ago, I worked for him and we had taken a fun road trip together back in 2008, along with my friend John and my youngest son). The deal was sealed.
We left my house in Central Washington early Monday morning on the 14th of March. We returned 12 days and 3,875 miles later on Friday evening March 25th. We spent a lot of time drinking Diet Pepsi from the ice chest and keeping the hits of the 60s (and occasionally the 70s), cranked up high on the Jeep’s Sirius satellite radio sound system. Sing along music! “Road trip” tunes.
Weather often dictated changes to our proposed route and activities. We stayed flexible, and in the end we visited the large majority of places we had hoped to see, when the road trip began. We had sun and clear skies, snow, dust storms, and high winds at times. Ed’s Jee
