In 1976, Eric spent two weeks backpacking in Canyonlands, Utah with the National Outdoor Leadership Schools. Canyonlands’ other worldly beauty mesmerized Eric then and lured us a bit off our course to the west coast. The side trip renewed our deep affection for this amazing place.
Our route from Los Alamos to Canyonlands took us through Colorado, where we spent the night in Mancos State Park.
