Cooper Discoverer-Overlanding through the Deserts of Utah and Arizona: In June?

#16
Here is another image from the trip. I just love exploring the desert for the grand landscape; however, I always keep an eye out for the small details. This is image is of Sam and Sammy looking out and over the Kaiparowits Plateau.

The PackRafting part of the trip was the absolute the best!
Thanks to Mike, four of us had the opportunity to try packrafting in the middle of the desert.
I never thought I would see the day that I would be walking in the heat of the June desert in the middle of nowhere (Heaven) with a kayak, paddles, life jacket, and enough food and film for three days. But we did it!
It was a lot of work but worth it. I believe the thought of water around the corner was the saving grace. :snorkel:

Thanks Mike and Aplacka Raft!

This is from the PackRafting section of this trip. Cant get shots like this unless you plan on staying the night and bringing some paddles. :wings:

Great Guide, Great Trip

Thanks to Mike H. for leading an amazing trip. Mike is like Mr. Outdoors Utah in that he leads one into some pretty amazing spots, avoiding the crowds and letting us see all the things off the beaten path. Looking forward to next year!

My son only joined us for a few days, but this shot sums up the beauty of our trip!

Yeah- Thanks Trip Leader Mike! Great trip even with the heat and my on and off again TLC. Sorry I missed the pack raft in Lake Foul.
Looking forward to seeing you next week in Wy.
