Summer Canyoneering

The Frankenberg family joined us for a day in the slots last week.  Escalante has been fortunate to get lots of rain this spring to help make up for a very dry winter.  This has made for a wet and muddy fun canyoneering season!  Come join us for some rockin good times on the ropes!

KSL Outdoors TV Shoot

Hello Canyoneers & Future Canyoneers!  It has been a super busy Spring here in Escalante.  Our tours have been packed, the accommodations in town busting at the seams and waits to get into the restaurants!  If you haven't visited Escalante, come for a visit and join the action.  

I took the photo below this morning as the team sat down to make a plan for a day of canyoneering.  Adam Eakle with KSL Outdoors is spending the day shooting with us for a piece on canyoneering safety.  We are excited to have him (back) in the canyons for a day!  The weather is awesome, so here is hoping for some great shots with today's crew.  We'll keep you posted!

Spring is Here!

Greetings canyoneers and future canyoneers!  Spring has arrived early here in Escalante and therefore our season is already rockin and rollin!  Spring Breakers are arriving in Southern Utah to enjoy this fabulous weather.  (it could be snowing)... Trees are already greening up and the flowers are blooming.  Crew out in the canyons today, so I thought I would post a flower shot from in front of the shop this morning.  Cheers!

Wrap it up, put a bow on it and call it Season 2014! Make way for the 2015 schedule!!

Ready to start thinking and daydreaming about next year?  
We are happy to announce the 2015 Multi Day Trip schedule is out! Click on the link below to learn about all the fun adventures we're planning for next season. See you in 2015!

Well folks, the days are getting shorter, the leaves are dropping and the busy season is winding down.  Soon Excursions will be following the summer sun south to Baja, MX where we'll be spending a little time relaxing and a lot of time poking around the backcountry of Baja, hunting down those hidden gems and secret spots for future Baja adventures. 

But first, let's look back at some of the highlights of our 2014 season...

Spring was beautiful, and the raptors were nesting! Rick rescued a very emaciated falcon chick from a canyon in the spring.  Last we heard from Best Friends was that the chick had regained strength and had been moved to the flight pen so he could beef up for a release!  

In August we had to say farewell to our assistant, Matt and his girlfriend Kami as they left Escalante for the Northwest and new adventures.  Matt started graduate school and last report was that he was happily emmersed in his studies and enjoying his classes. 

Excursions got technical.  Not only did we join the smartphone society (finally! our friends and family are very pleased.) but we also entered the wonderful world of social media!  Now you can follow our adventures and antics on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Trip Advisor, and Pinterest...as well as right here!! 

In October Jim and Caitie got married and Rick performed the ceremony!  It was a true Excursions family wedding- Jim is our lead guide and Caitie does just about everything here at EOE. The wedding was beautiful and weather was perfect. Couldn't be happier for those two. 

The 2014 season was filled with great people, wonderful adventures, and fun times with friends- new and old. Thanks to everyone for joining us for another amazing year doing what we love and sharing it with others. You made it happen.
