Easter Week in Utah with BCO!

Last Thanksgiving we explored the glorious terrain in central Utah, and we are craving more!

This time we will explore the south-central Utah area concentrating on Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks.  The daily hikes will be moderate with options for more challenging adventures, including possible opportunities for overnight backpack camping!

Transportation

Transportation will need to be agreed upon by those flying into Salt Lake City or Las Vegas, and carpooling in a high-clearance rental car.  Both are about a 4-hour drive to the rental home.  Fly in around noon, fly out after 3pm - we need time to tidy the rental house and drive to the airport!  Please make plans to attend the pre-trip meeting to determine arrangements.

Accommodations

We will have a rental house for 10-12 people.  Most likely everyone will either need to share a queen bed or sleep on an air mattress on the floor.  We can’t guarantee a bed, but there will be plenty of bad jokes and sipping whiskey by the fire!

Meals

We will have a full kitchen!  Everyone will pitch in with meal preparation, cleaning and kitchen duties.  Please let an event leader about any dietary restrictions.

 What to Bring

You will need to bring hiking gear, including a day pack, trekking poles (if desired), hiking shoes, hydration system, and clothing. Pack and dress in layers – highs will be in the ‘70s, and lows in the ’40s. Personal toiletries, any comfort items you desire and consider ear plugs since we’ll be sharing rooms!

Mark your calendar for our pre-trip planning meeting on March 10th to discuss what to bring, park & trail information, what to expect, etc. We will discuss car rental/carpooling from either Salt Lake City or Las Vegas, shared food/meals, kitchen duties, & sleeping arrangements.
