Little Rockies of Southern Utah

My twin sister drew a desert bighorn sheep tag in the "Little Rockies" of south central Utah. I was fortunate to go along and take photos.

I purchased my Lowa boots last Memorial Day and have used them all summer getting into shape for this beautiful red rock country. One of the biggest challenges was climbing slick rock--especially when it is steep and a fall could send one tumbling down a cliff.

These boots took me over 48 miles of backpacking in country few have been through with no trails to show the way. While searching for sheep, we found our water in hidden pot holes, discovered Moki Steps in a slot canyon, walked along plateaus littered with fragments of flint left by ancient peoples. And, finally, on the 11th day, my sister successfully harvested a ram.
