Time to break the ice here. My trips have slowed this winter due to other obligations, though I did manage to get out for a three-day weekend in late January. Since I didn’t make it to Utah in 2011 for some unexplained reason, it was definitely time to get back. And there isn’t a much better place than one of my favorite areas–Canyonlands. I really didn’t have any particular places in mind, but just wanted to get away and isolate myself in silence. It turns out that I did that for a day and a half worth where I didn’t see any sign of life (except a couple airplanes) and I ended up about 60 miles from the nearest pavement. It was just what the doctor ordered as my last time out was my east coast fall color trip that saw a great amount of people and development. Though it wasn’t too productive on the picture-taking front, it was a great trip to relax and to soak up some great scenery.
