Hiker Descending Cable on Slickrock, utah

Today I hiked to a new-to-me arch with a buddy of mine. We're both Dads, husbands and more or less gainfully employed and our schedules don't often mesh. Today we discovered that our hectic schedules allowed 3 hours for a quick morning escape. We exchanged a few text's and minutes later met at the trailhead.

This is a fun hike that requires one scramble after another, ending with a steep ascent of a sandstone fin assisted by a cable hand line that's full of burrs and errant, razor sharp wires (hence the gloves). At the top of the fin we sat down in the warm spring sun and chatted about cars, kids, life and the marketing machine that churns out the Extreme Sport Jelly Beans that we snacked on. It was a good day.
