Well, this will probably be the last location I geotag... Social media is having a crazy effect on the outdoors, even on some of the remote corners of wilderness that are extremely difficult to get to. ... This timelapse set is from 2016, when I first visited #ReflectionCanyon in #GrandStaircaseEscalante #Utah. It is a 8-10 mile hike with no trail and no water through rugged terrain, and we had the place all to ourselves for two nights. ... This year, an impressive number of people are making this trek, due to the extremely low water level in #LakePowell, and thanks to #geotagging and hashtagging on social media. I can only assume that the types of people who dare go to such a remote place are practicing #LeaveNoTrace, but the thrill of adventure is significantly lessened nonetheless. ... For those who are thinking of going: BE ADVISED- it is extremely remote, and there is no official trail or water access. You should not attempt this hike unless you are already experienced at wilderness navigation and survival. (Pick a safer hike to find out how much water you actually drink per day!) Be safe out there, folks! ... From now on, personally, my big adventures will focus on more unknown locations that aren't on any map, that don't have a hashtag or even a name associated with them. The wilderness of the American West has a lifetime of unknown places to explore. ... Click on the YouTube link in my bio for a full 8-minute video of this adventure!
