As I sit here and type this in Evergreen, CO, the snow is coming down, and coming down hard. With over 2 feet of snow in the last couple days it seems like Moab and the flip flop wearing weather I just came from is far, far away. The plan was to load up Alexia's Land Rover with all the gear needed to camp out for 4 days and 3 nights in Utah's red rock country. At first we thought we'd bring mountain bikes and had big plans of things to do. From past experiences though I know its all too easy to plan too much and not fit it all in. We simplified the plan down to just exploring in the Rover, taking alot of pictures, and getting in some good quality leisure time at our camp sites. We buzzed out on Saturday morning and made the 5 hour trek over. The weather was great, mid to high 60's for the most part, sunny, and only in the 40's at night. We were well equipped with camping gear, provisions, and vehicle for the two of us and Madison the dog for 4 days of adventuring. As usual, enough words, I'll let the pictures talk

After topping up the fuel, filling the water tank, and getting some last minute provisions, we rolled out and up along the Gemini Bridges road where we'd be making camp along Bull Canyon in a place that I have camped before and really enjoy. It was well past dark and we fired up all 6 Hella 500's to really put a dent in the darkness of the desert.
After getting camp setup, Alex went to work making some incredible mango guacomole.
