Grand Canyon

Stretching almost 280 miles in length, averaging a mile deep, and 10 miles wide, perhaps calling it the big ditch is a little understated. To truly experience the canyon, you need to descend one of its side canyons, or hike one of the many trails that descends below the rim.

Moab

Moab, the civilized desert. This is THE place to go for easy access canyoneering, hiking, roadside attractions, and then end the day with fine dining and a 4-star hotel.

North Wash

Canyoneering is king in North Wash, and likely the reason most visit. North Wash canyons tend to be short, narrow, and physical. This is the place to bring long sleeves and long pants. With easy access, next to the highway, this makes a good choice for groups.

Northern Nevada

Northern Nevada is the quintessential American West. Wild, open spaces that are sparsely populated with towns and ranches few and far between. This is the country where the cows, antelope, and deer far outnumber the human population.

Northern Utah

Northern Utah is the most populated area in Utah, though once you venture an hour or so away from the Wasatch Front, solitude can be found.

Robbers Roost

The Roost is a very remote area of south eastern Utah. Canyoneering adventures in Robbers Roost tend to be fairly dry, and have long exits. The area was used in the late 1800's and early 1900's by outlaws, hence the name.

San Rafael Swell

My favorite area in Utah, the San Rafael Swell offers excellent camping, hiking, canyoneering, and rock climbing. For solitude and amazing views, this is the place to go.

Southern Nevada

Nevada is a bit of a paradox. Home of the infamous Las Vegas, most of the states population resides in the Las Vegas or Reno areas. The rest of the state is very wild and rural. In fact, 67% of the land in the state is managed by the BLM.

West Desert

Utah's West Desert is a barren place, far more populated by wild horses and coyotes than people. Hiking and exploring the west desert is a solitary activity, but there is a stark beauty in the area, and many interesting things to see and do.

Zion & Southwest

Quite possibly the canyoneering capital in the US, Zion offers  canyoneering, climbing, and hiking among towering sandstone walls. The park itself is a destination, but within a short distance of the park are many additional wonders to be visited.
