grand canyon-parashant national monument car camp - March 28, 2024

This exploratory trip will visit a remote area south of St George that was declared a National Monument in 2000. It lies east of Gold Butte National Monument and north of Grand Canyon National Park, and has scenery that's reminiscent of both places. We'll visit the Grand Wash Cliffs area, including the Grand Gulch Mine, and we'll check out rugged gorges such as Pigeon Canyon. We'll drive down on Thursday and return on Monday. The roads here are terrible, so we'll need to carpool in high clearance 4x4 vehicles. You can expect off-trail hiking in the desert, at peak spring flower time.
