GSENM, March 23

That means Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. Our next stop was a base from which to explore the south end of the massive Nat’l. Mon. in Utah. We eventually camped at Whitehouse Campground at the trailhead for the Paria River Trail. Unfortunately we were about a month too early to explore the dirt backroads (and just about every road is a dirt backroad out here!). There was still snow on a lot of the roads, and the rest were too rutted from bad-weather travel. We had a great day of sunshine and hiked around the campground.

Hiking into a small canyon at Whitehouse campground.

Interesting rock formations.
