Backpacking with the Sierra Club in Coyote Gulch, Utah
Day 6, July 4, 2010

Day 6: We started out in the pre-dawn twilight and hiked out to the trailhead, hoping to beat the mid-day heat. We were somewhat successful, and drove home in time to see the 4th of July fireworks in town. Along the way, we stopped for hamburgers, pizza, and ice cream.
