Travel to Saint George, UT
Upper Escalante River
Wake up at one of the oldest archeological sites in Utah! Today we’ll hike 4 canyon miles through massive sage and cottonwood groves to find a historical granary, petroglyphs, and the impressive Escalante natural bridge. After a yummy lunch on trail, we’ll change out of our river-crossing shoes and delve deeper into the lives of the Ancestral PUEBLOANS at Anasazi State Park Museum, before returning to the Inn for a grounding evening session.
Lower Calf Creek Falls
Indulge in a daringly chilly plunge or enjoy the enchanting view from the “beach” at Lower Calf Creek Falls. Our 6 mile hike will wind us through yet another geologically mystifying canyon corridor, lush with riparian growth and a smattering of historical gems. Sessions today will take place at our stunning 126 foot perennial waterfall, as well as Back at the Inn.
Spooky & Peekaboo Slot Canyons
Buckle up for a bumpy drive down the historic Hole in the Rock Road! Today we’ll disappear into another corner of the astounding labyrinth that is Escalante National Monument, working together to wind our way through 5+ miles of sandstone playground, exploring narrow slot canyons. Dinner and session tonight will be held at the Devil’s Garden, an uniquely outstanding natural formation.
Kodachrome Basin State Park
Wrap up our incredible week together with a final scrumptious home cooked breakfast and morning session. We’ll break up the long drive back with a final 4+ mile hike in Kodachrome Basin State Park, checking out a smattering of fascinating geological and historical formations. After returning to Saint George, we’ll partake in a final closing session together.
