7-day hike in and around Dark Canyon

This is the third year that my friend Jeff McWhirter and I go for a multiple-day backpacking trip somewhere in southern Utah. The first trip was in and around the Escalante within the Grand Staircase National Monument, the second in the Grand Gulch (after experiencing the heaviest rains on record near Hanksville), and this year we did Dark Canyon (inspired a year ago by Tom Unger’s report).

This year I was decidedly in less good shape and it was the first 7-day hike instead of our usual 5-day adventures. But I survived well and the experience was well worth it. Jeff put up my pictures and even placed some of them on a Google Map Route.
