Downclimbing is always harder...In Utah

The first thing you learn when you get to Utah is it takes twice as long to get anywhere you need to go.  I don’t mean this in a big city way, with the people and traffic.  It takes twice as long to get to places in Utah because Utah is HUGE.

Garrett, my aunt Barb and I got the car in order with guide books, water bottles, snacks and cd’s, for a Saturday road trip to Nine Mile Canyon.

Playing the Right Hand

Flying across the country doesn’t seem like too big of a deal, but for a twelve-year-old who’s never gone past the east coast, traveling out west was bigger than life. Over the course of ten days, we saw the hundreds of Elvis impersonators and showgirls thriving in Las Vegas, the history-filled layers stretching across the walls of the Grand Canyon’s North Rim, the Caribbean blue waves dancing across Lake Powell, the mighty hoodoos piercing the sky in Bryce Canyon, the cleverly disguised wood remnants hiding in the Petrified Forest, and the playful rivers racing through Zion Canyon.

Feeling the Land of the West

Gone was the sea breeze and moist air of our salty South Carolina coast. Here in Kanab, Utah our lips cracked like the sand tresses of the red canyons we gazed upon. This place made us dig deep into our souls and deep into our boots for that piece of us that remembered what it was to be feral. It was in that moment of letting go the suspense of life and actually enjoying the grit in my teeth and feel of my muscles lifting the pitchfork, sifting the pitchfork, and lizard-walking through the sand to dump the manure into the ATV bed, that I felt free.

Suspended in the Air: Rappelling Down Utah's Intimidating Cliffs

Sweat pours down my tanned face under the relentless Utah sun.  I am hiking to the rappelling site in Moab, Utah, near Arches National Park.  My back sticks to my shirt, and my legs burn in agony.  Surrounded by sand, moss, and the similar struggles of my friends, I reach for the water bottle in my backpack and sip that cool refreshing water.  However, the last thing I am worrying about is the heat, or the sweat, or the soreness.  I worry whether I can conquer the rappelling challenge.  I continue to hike as I see my friends go through similar predicaments—the lip-biting, heavy breathing, a
