Slot Canyons Inn Escalante Utah, beavertail cactus flowers in pinkI love the desert in the springtime, it was the perfect temperature for hiking. This weekend was unseasonable cool- freezing, windy and hailing at times. I love to see the desert in bloom. There were little bits of color everywhere you turned.

Slot Canyons Inn Escalante Utah, Anasazi indian graineryThis Anasazi indian grainery or dwelling is an easy hike from the Inn, within walking distance and in great shape for carefully peeking around, get info and permission from the innkeeper. I can’t believe that in 25 or so years coming to this place- this was the first time I have ever seen or hiked to them. Thanks to my brother Adam for showing us these dwellings, some great views and a downhill course and single track for mountain bikes that I can’t wait to try. Thanks dude.

A view of the town of Escalante and Wide Hollow Reservoir and perhaps Lake Powell in the distance there… from a very high peak we climbed (I have no idea what it’s called).

    I’m glad that you didn’t get rained out! My brother & his wife were camping down there and did the slot canyon hike. Looks gorgeous! We need to go to your parents B&B-from what I can see, looks like they did a great job on it! Glad you had fun with your family.

    So beautiful. Even though I was so young when we would all come together there, I have so many wonderful memories.
