Tricky drop-in
Luke tries to gracefully get down the bank into the river. [enlarge]
Evidence of Flood
This is a typical scene when hiking in the Escalante's flood plain - bent over trees and shrubs. A remnant of last fall's super-flood event. [enlarge]
Fantastic Scenery
The canyon of the Escalante gets more and more beautiful the further we wade downstream. This idyllic spot is not far from the mouth of twentyfive-mile wash. [enlarge]

25-mile wash campsite
Our campsite high up on the inside of a bend at the very lower end of twenty-five mile wash, just a few hundred metres up from its confluence with the Escalante. [enlarge]
Peaceful Campsite
Our isolated little campsite in the heart of the Utah Desert. [enlarge]
Dinner in 25-mile Wash
