So we had a wonderful Fall Break trip in the Escalante area this year and since you all provided some useful advice, I figured I owed you all a trip report. This was a crew of 13- 4 adults and 9 kids ranging from 3 to 15, mostly clustering in the 10-12 range. Our first stop on Day 1 was Peekaboo and Spooky. Knowing that EVERYONE and their dog would be doing this canyon, we prepared the night before by trying to figure out how to avoid the crowds. We figured with daylight and temperatures as they were, most people would show up at 10 am. So we planned to get up early to beat the crowds. Well, that didn't work out so well and we showed up at the trailhead at 10 am sharp, along with about 6 other vehicles of people. It was still fine as we were the first ones down. One couple played through us quickly and one group played through between the canyons, but overall a pretty pleasant 3 hour jaunt through the two canyons. The kids had great fun on the big sand dune at the mouth of Spooky, of course. It was a wonderful warm up for the rest of the weekend. After Peekaboo and Spooky, we went to visit The Devil's Garden, which is pretty cool if you've never been there. You can even test yourself on some challenging and sketchy up and down climbs there. The next morning, we took the whole crew to Egypt 1. Imagine my surprise when we pull up at 10 am and find @Rick Green there with four or five clients from Tennessee dropping in. We tried to give them a little space, but kids being kids, we probably weren't the best folks to share a canyon with. We may also have made the clients feel a little silly on their first rappel as all our smaller kids rapped down next to them on meat before the oldest fiddled the tree for her descent.
