Hurricane Wash to Coyote Gulch Backpack

This is the first leg of a 3-day backpacking trip. I started at the Hurricane Wash trailhead along the Hole in the Rock road, near Escalante Utah. I hiked down Hurricane Wash to its confluence with Coyote Gulch (about 6 miles), and made my camp there. After dropping my gear at camp, I hiked down Coyote Gulch to see Jacob Hamblin Arch. This track is named "Jacob Hamblin Arch. The next day I hiked down Coyote almost to its confluence with the Escalante river, and then back to camp, as shown in the track "Coyote Gulch to Escalante River". The third day I hiked back out to the trailhead, in "Coyote to Hurricane TH".

Coyote to Huricane TH

After two nights camped at the confluence of Hurricane Wash and Coyote Gulch, I backpacked out to the Hurricane Wash trailhead along the Hole in the Rock Road. While still in the green part of the canyon, I had a nice view of a buck deer, who bounded past me. This hike included some amazing canyon scenery. The weather was perfect, pleasant during the day and just a little chilly at night. I understand that this canyon is a very popular hike, but I did not see anyone else in Coyote Gulch, although there were lots of footprints. I did see a couple hiking into Hurricane Wash as I was on my way out.
