Hiking the Utah Trails

This is a sample of what passes for a trail in Utah. All of those rocks are loose and climbing is a task of maintaining your balance with a pack and at the same time trying to negotiate the places where the rocks aren't moving down the hill. In addition, the weather was hot, even this early in morning, and we were starting out at about the 8,000 foot level and climbing to more than 9,000 feet. On this particular trail, there was not one level section for more than a mile and half.
