I will take guests into an area that has incredible views of red and white sandstone, black basalt rock (from volcanic activity), pinon pine, juniper and sage. The guests and I will enter an amazing slot canyon, and an additional one if time and energy levels allow. During the hike the guests will be shown four different Anasazi (ancient native Americans) petroglyph locations. I will describe the local geology (pretty darn interesting, if I do say so myself), history, plants and animals. It will be fun, entertaining and great to be outdoors!
I am a 20 year veteran of guided hiking. I have hiked for several organizations throughout southern Utah, including Road Scholar and several different spas. My years of experience have shown me where gorgeous views, unusual and interesting formations, and amazing points of interest can be found that most people don't know about and even if they did would not be able to find on their own. I have guided literally thousands of people in and around St. George Utah, Zion National Park, Bryce National Park, Snow Canyon State Park and many more places. I hold permits and permissions to guide in all of these places.
I provide granola bars but encourage the guests to bring their own snacks.
Walking poles, day packs if needed, and frozen washcloths for cooling down in the event of warm weather.
This amazing hiking excursion will take place on a sparsely used trail in the area around St. George, Utah, an area known for its incredible scenery and diverse outdoor activities. I will take the guests on a point-to-point hike through a pinyon and juniper desert past amazing rock formations and end near a popular rock climbing location.
Bring at least two bottles of water, hiking poles if you have your own , sturdy shoes, hat, sunblock and day pack.
