Escaping the wintery climate of North Lake Tahoe, we headed east into southern Utah and Northern Arizona to dry off and warm up. The weather sort of cooperated and let us travel where we chose, but the regular rain showers and stormy skies kept us out of some narrower slot canyons. Although our original goal was to get a permit at The Wave in northern Arizona, we were unable on multiple tries to score one of the 10 spots per day that are handed out by lottery. We did however get to Wire Canyon and Buckskin Gulch - both worthy of a day's exploration. We stumbled upon Desert Wildlife Sanctuary and Pipe Springs National Monument in Nevada, and hit one of our standby regulars - Red Rock Canyon State Park.
Lake Tahoe is stormy with the sky falling on our departure.
