San Rafael River Gorge | Friday & Saturday, March 31 – April 1, 2017

Looking down the San Rafael River Gorge from The Wedge after hiking through the canyon.

Visiting the Little Grand Canyon in the heart of the northern San Rafael Swell has been something I have wanted to do for a long time. I’ve looked down into the gorge from the edge of The Wedge may times before and thought to myself that I needed to get down there. I had always dismissed going there on a day-hike because of it’s length and figured I would be able to catch the San Rafael River at the right time so I could take my inflatable kayak through the canyon. That has obviously never happened yet which is why I put this trip off for so long. Since there is a long local hike near my home that I’ve been thinking about doing this spring, I thought that hiking the Little Grand Canyon would be a good test to see if I was going to be up for it or not, so I finally went for it.

Saturday & Sunday, March 29-30, 2014

I recently realized that I hadn’t been out to the San Rafael Swell in quite some time and felt it was time to get back again. Diane had never been to the Swell before so I thought it would be nice to give her an overview tour of the northern Swell this weekend. She would get to see some new sights and I would get to revisit and rephotograph some sites I have been to in the past. We left Grand Junction early on Saturday morning and made our way west through Green River before passing through the San Rafael Reef and climbing onto the San Rafael Swell.

I’ve spent plenty of time in the San Rafael Swell in the past, however it always seems that whenever I go, Amanda is not able to go with. This time Amanda was able to go with me, so we ended up hitting up a lot of sites that I’ve been to before that she hadn’t. Don’t worry, I also checked out some new trails and sites along the way, too.

After getting a good night’s sleep in my motel room at the Inca Inn, I was up early again on Monday morning to meet up with some Midwest Chapter members to go an run Golden Spike. We were originally planning on a pretty large group showing up, but because of some setbacks it ended up only being myself, Rev and Susie, and John (lesslimited) and Cindy.

IntrepidXpedition 2007 | Day 13

This morning I started out by heading west on I-70 through the San Rafael Reef and up onto the San Rafael Swell.

Coming up to the San Rafael Reef with the moon above (it’s there if you look closely).

Once on the Swell I made my way over to Eagle Canyon. Driving under I-70 through a small culvert with just enough room 😉
