The two best summers of my life were spent working (and playing) in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. It's one of the most beautiful places on the face of this earth... Well, in my opinion.

This fall we headed down there for an extended weekend camping trip. Everything turned out absolutely perfect. Good company, perfect weather and lots of rest and relaxation. What made this trip so splendid was that we headed to the Monument with only one goal in mind. To enjoy being outside.

We definitely accomplished that. We did some hiking, some laying around in hammocks and plenty of spontaneous rope swings.

Words can't describe how much I love that Southern Utah sun.

What's a Chaconian?

You are Chaco!

Chaconians are our pride and joy! They pound pavement, trails, and waves. They teach, reach, and perform. They're people who trust their Chacos, and we're honored to support them.
