As most of the Dowd clan knows, the St. Louis Dowds (thats me) are in Moab, Utah for the holidays. Today was Christmas, and we had a great time. After the presents and a great breakfast, my brother Dan and I headed out for a little afternoon hike.
We went to Hidden Valley, a hike which is decievingly difficult. At the trail head, it looked as though we would hike through a gap in the rocks, but as it turned out, that was not the plan. We hiked straight up the bluff, about 900 feet of zig-zagging "trail" (I use that word lightly, as it was more of the path of least resistance, and less of a trail). Anyway, it was a great hike to burn off some of the ham and potatoes from Christmas Eve dinner. Here a few photos from the trailhead looking back. I regret that I never took a picture of the bluff we climbed, and I didnt bring my camera with me on the hike.
