Harry and Percy complete their grand Coyote Gulch Adventure

When last we left our intrepid adventurers, they had just bedded down for the first night of their Coyote Gulch Adventure. The next morning, after packing up camp, we headed up the tributary and on to more amazing scenery during the 6-mile trek from camp #1 to camp #2. Along the way, we saw beautiful falls, Natural Bridge, Jacob Hamlin Arch, and the Amphitheater. Be prepared for another photo dump, but that's what cameras and blogs are for, right?

As we started our final day hiking out of the Gulch, Percy and Harry were prepared for two miles of canyon and 3-4 miles of desert. The switch to desert was gradual, which made it easier to traverse.

Harry and Percy were happy to land at the end of the adventure with Thing One and Thing Two (also known as the BC Twins).

On Hole in the Rock road back to Escalante, we blew out a tire and had to figure out how to drop the spare on Dexter (something we hadn't done before). Percy and Harry were great help to Mr. Perfect in fixing the car. Fortunately, it was a full-sized spare, and we made it back to Salt Lake without further incident.
