I have now completed the BIG FIVE national parks in the Utah: Arches, Zion, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, and now, Bryce Canyon. Without knowing it, I think I saved the best for last.
One of trails that leads to the summit of Timp is the Timpooneke (tim-poo-new-key) Trail. This morning, after the rain stopped, I drove up into American Fork Canyon and went to the trail. My intention was to hike about 1.4 miles in on the trail, count it as a bit of practice for the 14.2 mile hike to the summit and back.
If you were hoping this post was about some awesome recipe of how to cook chicken while camping out on a mountain, then you will likely be disappointed. Nope, this post is about a 6' 3" chicken. Me.
After a long and stressful day at work, where I was on video calls almost the entire day, I was ready for the great outdoors. Both Mother Nature and Rock Canyon did not let me down.
