In March, instead of our regular spring Escalante trip, we headed down to Needles during spring break and hiked Elephant Hill and Big Spring Canyon to Lost Canyon. It was windy on the trail, and we were about blown away as we came to the tops of the cliffs and down over the bluffs.
On Sunday, we stopped at the Morning Glory Arch trail and hiked it for a quick trip on our way home. It’s really funny to think we tried to hike this about 6 years ago and turned around before we got to the arch because we were so tired out. Now it’s just a quick morning jaunt to get us going for the day — took about 2 hours including ample picture time.
