A story from one of our Founding Members, thanks Kate!

046Wow! What a wonderful day I had hiking today.  I started out with just a small exploratory hike in mind, and ended up on a wonderful adventure.  While hiking along the old mining roads that run throughout the Vermilion Cliffs I crossed over a little dry creek bed framed by two large sentinel stones.  “I wonder where that leads” was the thought passing through my mind.  Well I had time and plenty of water so I decided to check it out.  I headed up the trailing, following the footprints of a sheep or deer that must also have felt it was a good route.  I kept expecting to come upon some obstacle but other than a bit of side step  around the large chokestone in the photograph, it was pretty much an easy hike.  There was a bit of rock scrambling but that is what makes hiking fun.  And, as you can see from the photo, it was totally worth the effort.  From my vantage point at the base of the Cliffs. I could glimpse Navajo Mountain to my left, Lees Ferry Lodge and Badger Creek directly below me, and a wide open panoramic view of the valley stretching out in all directions
