The goal of the trip was a 4×4 tour of Picketwire Canyon. It ended up being a fantastic experience, guided in our own vehicles by professional guides. I would definitely recommend it.
I was tent camping, and the spot I was in was next to the playground and swarming with ants. The ground was thick with them. I was pretty careful going in and out of my tent and didn’t see too many ants inside, but it was a little creepy to be sleeping among so many of them. The one saving benefit was that the owners let me run an extension cord to the electrical outlet nearby, so I had electricity.
Ben and I camped next to each other and stayed up until sunrise, laughing by the campfire and telling stories. It was a great time, but not the best place to camp in a tent.
