Southwest

Water Fun in the Desert Sun

The Southwest is often imagined as desert and cacti. Let's go explore the desert and reservoirs of Arizona and Utah. 

Expectation

Let me begin by saying, you do not need to have any experience adventuring in order to join. Everyone will receive a preparation and packing guide. This trip won't be technical at all. 

 

This will be a different vibe than the other adventures I guide. This will be more chill but fully immersed in water vibes. If you are not a swimmer or comfortable with wearing a life vest regularly, you should not come. 

We will be on a houseboat in Lake Powell for the first few days and then visiting a swimming hole and Mars like reservoir and landscape the last couple days. 

If you get motion sick, I would not recommend joining us.

Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive 

This first day we will arrive and stay in Vegas for the night. 

Day 2 - Coral Pink Sand Dunes for lunch & Lake Powell for dinner

We'll eat breakfast in Vegas then hit the road 4.5 hours to Lake Powell. Along the way we'll stop in at the incredible Coral Pink Sand Dunes. These have been on my list for a couple years now. We will grab lunch a couple minutes away in Kanab before heading to Lake Powell. Once arriving at the lake we will unload, make dinner, and relax while enjoying the incredible views of our temporary home.

Day 3 - Swimming, Kayaks and Slot Canyons

This day we will just explore the lake. Lake Powell has endless slow canyons to explore by kayak or jet ski. This day will just be fun in the sun without any agendas. 

Day 4 - Bryce Canyon Magic & St. George Sunset

Bryce Canyon is known for its incredible crimson-colored spire shaped rocks that sprawl the horizon as far as your eye can seen. We will have an early breakfast then head here to hike the famous Queen's Garden and Navajo Loop trails. From here we will head to St. George where we will have a picnic style dinner at Sand Hollow Reservoir. 

Day 5 - Sand Hollow & Toquerville Falls

We'll start our day ATVing Sand Hollow reservoir area for a few hours. After lunch we'll head to Toquerville Falls to swim. This swimming hole crossed my IG feed and have been planning to visit for the last 2 years. We'll stay here to watch the sunset before heading back to St. George for our last dinner together.

Day 6 - Bye!

We will head back to Vegas which is just under 2 hours for everyone to head out. Plan to leave after 12pm.
