Killing time – A few of my favorite pics from the trail

I’m not sure if you’re like me, but I am 3 hours away from departure for my next adventure –a 3 day backpacking trip to Havasu Falls, Mooney Falls, and Beaver Falls on the Supai Indian Reservation – and I am so anxious I need to fill the time.

So I thought I would look back through some of my past adventures and share some of my favorite photos with you.

I love this picture.  I used a spider tripod to take this self portrait from the trail that leads to Turtlehead Peak in Red Rock.

I didn’t make it to the summit that day, but this 2 hour quick hike was well worth it.  The views are amazing, but the trail up the wash to the saddle is a mess.

I would really like to take credit for this shot, but I can’t.  My wife, Cathy, took this shot as we worked our way up a canyon in the Bud Love Game Preserve in the Big Horns outside of Buffalo, WY.

This is a gorgeous area and I can’t wait to get back on the trails there this summer.

I took this photo of Brian from the top pool in Icebox Canyon, one of the best short hikes in Red Rock.

There a short climb to get to the vantage point but it’s worth it.

The only view that is better is the view down on this spot from the natural land bridge as you approach Bridge Mountain – over 800 feet above this pool!

This was one of those “double take” moments.  We hiked a ridgeline above our cabin near Panguitch Lake in southern Utah.  As we reached the high point on the ridgeline, we saw this tree.

I had looked directly at the tree and not noticed the phone, but Cathy did.  It was a good laugh and a much needed break for me.  I was really dragging at this point.

Well, I think it’s time to check my pack one more time before heading out.  Be sure to stop by the Trail Sherpa Facebook Page and share some of your favorite trail photos.

I’ll be back Sunday night and will certainly dive into the trip report immediately.  Look for the full details, including the photos, videos, and downloadable GPX file sometime Tuesday.
