Four day weekend in Utah red rock slot country around Escalante and Hole in the Rock road with Norby's and crew. Made the drive up on Friday and found a car camp spot in Harris Wash. Next morning on Saturday we had two objectives....the Cosmic Ashtray and the Red Breaks. Weather forecast was not good and as predicted it rained most of the day but we didn't let that stop us from the hike. First we checked out the Cosmic Ashtray taking road part way and then hitting the way point cross country. Very cool rock feature nestled among the sandstone domes. We spent some time looking around and took a break before moving on.

Heading cross country we made our way to the second area called Red Breaks. After several ridge and saddle traverses we reached the head of Red Breaks Canyon. Rain started to pick up and as we headed down canyon the wash began to flow. Nothing to extreme but it made the slick rock traverses more interesting and some pooling in the canyon. Continuing down canyon it begins to narrow where we eventually hit a pour off that we decided not to attempt. Backtracking we found an up and around out of the canyon and then found our way back in. Dropped into more narrows and continued down canyon without too much trouble. Great canyon section out to where it opens back up with slick rock traverses, pools, and narrows. Once out of the Red Breaks it's short hike back to camp and some post hike beverages :D
