The Grand Gulch II (25 Years Ago)

A little while ago I posted a few pictures from the Grand Gulch in Utah. This year, almost to the day, it is 25 years ago that I went there with a few hiking friends from Berkeley.

One of them is now Math Professor in Utah. I don’t know the fate of the others in the picture. I see him occasionally at conferences.

Pictures like the ones above are misleading. The gulch is mostly a narrow canyon, and if you think there is an exit just around the corner, it is a dead end.

There is water, but not much. Seeing a stream like the one below is rare and means you better fill your water bottles.

The week long hike leaves ample time to contemplate the beauty of natural walls.
