This Image Gallery captures moments from an outing to the American Desert Southwest in October of 1999. This was one of the few times we travelled to the area in the fall, and we had fabulous weather almost for the whole time.

Over the course of our week and a half, we visited a wide range of place and terrain types. We had some challenging outings, too... from a long day canyoneering in Zion to some lofty 13,000+ backpacking in southwestern Colorado to some technical Jeeping in Canyonlands.

Info stop
Our first major stop was Zion National Park, where the first thing we did was introduce a few new people to the famous and exciting Angel's Landing hike!

Next, it was on to something more challenging: a long day down a semi-technical canyoneering route that culminated in a very scenic spot called 'the Subway'. Unfortunately we have no actual pictures of the subway because it was dark by the time we got there! still, a fantastic outing.
