I had a fantastic time with friends at last week's Decemberists show. Really good performance. Typhoon opened. They were good too. (Week 2 in the Twilight Concert Series.)

Dinner at Ekamai (Thai) and Bruges (Belgian) before the show. (Cali and Joey)


Pioneer Park was PACKED!

Explosions in the Sky

Explosions in the Sky and No Age opened the Twilight Concert Series last night at Pioneer Park in downtown Salt Lake City. I'm not a fan of either band, but the people watching was fantastic. Below are a sampling of the sites.

Slot Canyon Adventure

Brandon, Chris, and I took a slot canyon backpacking trip down to the Paria Canyon area near Kanab this past weekend. Here are some of my photos:

At Moqui Cave off the 89

Brandon foreshadowing the actual bowel trouble he would be afflicted with for the rest of the trip. This is what happens when you desecrate the sacred Moqui Cave.

Chris at White House campground where we spent the first night.

The wash leading into Paria Canyon

It was REALLY hot. Chris taking a break.

Inside Paria

This was about as much water as we had to hike through. There's a lot more earlier in the year. 

The Three Toe-migos: Chris and Brandon wore Five Fingers; I went barefoot. 

Brandon becoming one with the canyon.

Our campground in Buckskin Canyon where we spent the 2nd night.

Hiking through Buckskin Canyon the next day

Under and...

Over. Brandon using the chiseled hand holds to get over a blocked passage.

Chris doing some bouldering up top.

Pit stop

It's pretty amazing

I nearly walked right into this rattler. That would have been unfortunate. 

Getting closer to Wire Pass

I got too hot and tired to take more pictures after this. I'll try and round some more up from Brandon and Chris.
