This was part of a trip that included Wire Pass Canyon out to Buckskin Gulch, Coyote Buttes South, and Toad Stools. We met some friend who live in SLC and had a short time to squeeze some hikes. As usual we had applied for a Wave permit months ahead and were denied, so we settled for a CBS permit instead.

We stopped into the visitor's center in Kanab on Friday to check on road conditions since this there was about a foot of snow that fell a few days before, and now the temps were in the high 50s and it was melting fast. They told us the only problem was about 4 miles in on house rock valley road right about the Buckskin Gulch trailhead. they advised, there was some water flowing at that crossing, but if we had a 4wd with clearance we should be fine. I drove out there and checked it out and decided we would be good to go the next day when our friends showed up.

I really wanted to check out some of Buckskin, but we were limited on what we wanted to fit in so we settled for Wire Pass. It did not disapoint, only problem is it made me want more. We also got there early enough that we had the place to ourselves, but there was a pretty decent crowd headed in as we were headed out. I know a buckskin trip will have to come in the future.
