To get the canyon trips rolling early for 2023, we will go again to Blanding, Utah, for 3 days of hiking on April 13, 14, and 15, Thursday-Saturday. I’ve reserved lodging in Blanding, Utah, in the same condos as last year (the upstairs ones this time). From there, we can pick our hikes from the northern end of Comb Ridge, Mule and Arch Canyons, Natural Bridges National Monument, and White Canyon. We will have plenty to choose from, and the 3 days will go quickly. We will do our usual cross-country exploring, seeking places that are seldom travelled.

The two condos total 8 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. We will probably fill 3 bedrooms per unit, depending on demand. We will plan to eat most dinners in, and use the kitchens to prepare our own breakfasts and pack our own lunches. There is a grocery store at the south end of Blanding. If we use 6 bedrooms, the cost will average under $300 per room for the 4 night stay. Couples will pay about 1/3 more for a room than singles.

I expect to leave early enough Wednesday April 12 to avoid driving after dark, and carpool to the extent possible. We will return home on Sunday the 16th. One may reserve a slot with a deposit of $250 per room. Please contact Bill to arrange a spot. This should be another great adventure to get us started on the 2023 canyon season.
