Backpacking with the Sierra Club in Coyote Gulch, Utah
Day 1, June 29, 2010

Day 1: We left Las Vegas and drove about 5 hours to the BLM Visitor Center in Escalante, UT. From there we continued for another hour to the trailhead, where temperatures were about 100 degrees. We couldn't wait for the rest of the crew in the blazing sun, so we started down the trail. We stopped 6.5 miles out and camped on a rocky bench above the creek.
