Third Stop, Coyote Gulch

Hiking through giant, cavernous cliffs

Hello from the Best Western in Bryce Canyon City. When I last wrote I was in Escalante after completing my hike in Canyonlands National Park. Since then, I did an overnight hike in Coyote Gulch which is part of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. This was much more secluded than Canyonlands but equally as spectacular. I hiked in through something called Hurricane Wash. Once I reached the Coyote Gulch, I was enclosed by huge, towering cliffs on each side while I followed the stream bed below. What was amazing about these cliffs, is that as the stream meandered one way and then another, it managed to carve out huge semi-circles in the rock, making each cliff into a natural amphitheater. In some cases, the cliffs surrounded me on three sides while also enclosing me overhead. The cliffs were too big to photograph. All I can tell you is that they were an incredible sight to see.

Today and tomorrow I'm visiting Bryce Canyon which is only partially open because of deep snows. I will share some photos from Bryce Canyon tomorrow before finally heading back home on Sunday/Monday. For now, enjoy these photos from Hurricane Wash and Coyote Gulch.
