Bouldering in Joe's Valley

For part of our Memorial Day weekend we headed down to an area called Joe's Valley.  It is about 30-45 minutes just outside of Price.  We had only heard about this place, and heard there was some great bouldering.  Plus, we had a new tent and sleeping bags to try out.  So, we rounded up a few friends, our gear, and headed south.

We didn't know exactly where to go, but luckily a local knew a general idea.  "Look for the parked cars on the side of the road down the canyon," he said.  That's exactly what we did.  There were cars everywhere and people grabbing their gear and heading to the rocks.  We just had to pick a place and stop.  Turned out to be a great half day of bouldering, a great camping trip and a place we will definitely return to.
 Adrienne is starting to get more confident with my camera and her artistic eye is starting to come out as well.  This little tree was at the top of the first boulder we were climbing on.  Unfortunately Adri also basically became the photographer, so you won't see many photos of her climbing.  I think she is ok with that as she feels that she is still coming into her own as a climber.

 After a bit of climbing we had to hike around with our non-climbing friends, and then become one with nature.

Again, this is a place we will definitely return to, and one we are happy to take people with us.  So, if you're ever in Utah and want to enjoy some beautiful Utah scenery and climbing... we know at least one place to go.
