Spring Canyon Adventure 2007

with Charles Yeamans and Andy Exley

by Reid Priedhorsky

In March 2007, my longtime friend Charles Yeamans, my new friend Andy Exley, and I traveled to the canyon country of southeast Utah for a fabulous adventure, exploring two particularly remote, rugged, and pristine canyons. We were in the backcountry for eight days and didn’t see anyone else the whole time.

These particular canyons are underdocumented, and I’d like to keep them that way. Therefore, this report does not contain location-revealing information. (Obviously, someone who is particularly clever or familiar with the area can figure it out. I just want to hide the information from casual inspection and keep it out of Google results for the relevant places.)

This trip report was written and organized by me. Uncredited photos were taken by me. This trip report is copyright 2007 by Reid Priedhorsky, and all images are copyright 2007 by their respective owners. All rights are reserved.
