I'm going to Escalante and Boulder Utah THIS WEEK (Thursday and Friday--only). I'll be staying at the Boulder Lodge B & B. My wife and I are doing some workshops for the elementary school in Escalante.
This is some of the most rugged and beautiful country in Utah (and the world). If anyone is interested in popping up for Thursday afternon and evening, let me know! It is about 4 hours from SLC, 7 hours from Pheonix (I think), 3 hours from Las Vegas, 2 hours from St. George.
Come join us!
