Hi Guys
Thanks for all of the nice comments and Duke, glad you are back.

The Fiery Furnace is an area in Arches that has limited access by permit only. A bunch of my canyoneering buddies went with me recently to do a route with a 130 and 50 ft rappels. Great day with great weather. I was the first one down on the long rap so the photos are not of me. I was third on the short one so there are a few of me smile

Peter

Peter,

Great pics as usual. The last pic looks like a sand city on the horizon.

Hi Guys
thanks again for the nice comments about my previous adventure.
The latest was in Horse canyon. About an eleven mile hike, but easier than our regular hikes as it was mostly in a sandy wash bottom.
Some really nice pothole arches and some nice older structures especially Tower ruin.

Peter

Several of us went camping in Cedar Mesa in south east Utah to visit some ruins, in particular Moon House and Lewis Lodge. We visited Moon House the first day and then drove to near Lewis Lodge to set up camp on a mesa at 7500 feet with a view of the Abajos mountains. It did get pretty cold at night at that altitude in April. When we got up we started the hike to Lewis lodge which is a set of ruins on a very high ledge in a side canyon off of Arch canyon. It is a little tricky to get there and there is some exposure on the ledge where the ruins are located. After we climbed back up we viewed Angel arch and Cathedral arch. On the way back home the winds were very strong and we drove through a sand storm like I have never seen before.
I hope you enjoy the photos
Peter
