Why did I move to Utah? Well yes I did get a job here but to even consider a job the location needed to have outdoor recreation nearby. Utah has that in spades. Friday morning Carly and I skied at Snowbird in a spring storm. They had gotten 10″ in the last 48 hours and got a few more inches while we were there. What’s better than fresh turns at a nearly empty resort in May? Driving 3.5 hours to the desert to enjoy warm weather, sandstone, and spring flowers.
Coppi and I headed down to the San Rafael Swell after my half day at work on Friday and we climbed some great routes at the Dylan Wall. We didn’t see a single other climber. Unfortunately a storm was rolling in and we packed up Saturday evening after climbing to return to Salt Lake. The storm is predicted to drop a few inches of snow in the higher elevations of the desert. Spring in Utah!
