Tick List

4 trip Muley Point - Cedar Mesa
Date: 10/14/2023
Drove up the Dugway after the Ring of Fire Eclipse in Valley of the Gods. Definitely a spot for a future camping trip.
4 trip Goosenecks State Park - Mexican Hat
Date: 10/13/2023
Finally got back to and able to camp at one of my first great “finds” in the Southwest back in the 90’s. Pretty cool camping right on the rim for 4 days waiting for the Annular Eclipse. Hiked the “rim loop” on the last day.
3 trip Double Stack Ruin - Comb Ridge
Date: 10/12/2023
Interesting ruin with the upper “mother-in-law suite”!
3 trip Wolfman Panel - Cedar Mesa
Date: 10/12/2023
Short jaunt to one of the most vivid and distinct panels we’ve seen. Small but special.
3 trip Lower Butler Wash - River Panel - Comb Ridge
Date: 10/11/2023
Large fantastic panel with great river views and a beautiful and interesting hike out and back with one of the more eerie and serene ruins we’ve explored. We had the whole canyon to ourselves. (3.4/540)
4 trip Sand Island Petroglyph Panel - Bluff
Date: 10/10/2023
Nice panel, obviously with easy access.
3 trip Lower Old Woman Wash - Eastern Reef
Date: 11/01/2020
Great loop with a perfect mix of geology, beauty, and culture.
3 trip4 trip Goblin Valley - Southern Swell
Date: 10/31/2020
Back for an over-nighter in the park and then a Full Moon Halloween Goblin Shroom! Last night at Temple Mountain West CG.
1 trip3 trip Wild Horse Window & Canyon - Southern Swell
Date: 10/31/2020
Fun little jaunt up the box canyon to a fairly unique horizontal window arch. The “modern” art in the alcove is pretty obviously fake but there is an authentic one up a bit on the left side of the canyon. Will have to back to the larger panel on the other side of the ridge that we were not aware of.
3 trip The Great Gallery - Horseshoe Canyon
Date: 10/20/2020
Over-nighted on the canyon rim campground which has splendid views albeit with significant exposure. A sandy path at the bottom of the canyon leads to a few very good panels before reaching the world-class show stopper. Saw feral burros further down the canyon.
3 trip4 trip Goblin Valley - Southern Swell
Date: 10/17/2020
One of the most amazing spots in UT (yes! that’s saying a lot). Stayed three nights in the campground and hiked Entrada Canyon and Curtis Bench Trails.
4 trip Black Dragon Wash - San Rafael Swell
Date: 10/16/2020
Beautiful 4WD trail into a dramatic canyon with nice panels.
4 trip Crescent Junction Panels - Moab
Date: 10/15/2020
Fun scavenger hunt for all the panels in a striking location.
4 trip Sego Ghost Town - Thompson

Date: 10/15/2020
