  • Fewer Crowds:  Tourism in Southern Utah peaks in spring after winter has melted away and the wildflowers are blooming, and in summer when kids are out of school and parents rely on the great outdoors for family time. Fall is a quieter season in canyon country and offers more breathing room and solitude to explore the vast wilderness. Enjoy fewer cars on the road, no lines to get in and better rates for lodging!DSC 9874 edit
  • Ideal Weather:  Strong gusts of winds howl through Southern Utah during the springtime but tend to dissipate in the fall. Additionally, temperatures are typically 70-75 degrees with sunshine making for pleasant adventures in canyon country. IMG 4492 edit 960
  • Fall Colors:  When thinking about the best places to see fall colors in the country, red rock country is not what usually comes to mind, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. There is a range of opportunities to admire the cottonwood and aspens turning from green to golden in Southern Utah. The canyons are dotted with grand cottonwoods that make a striking contrast against the warm red canyon walls. Drive up into the Henry Mountains to admire a forest of aspens making the transition to fall.IMG 0803 edit 960
  • If you are visiting Southern Utah during the fall season, we would love to have you join us on a canyon adventure. You can find more details about Get In the Wild’s offerings at

    Exciting New Adventures Beginning Spring 2017!

    Great news!  Beginning in March 2017, Get In The Wild was granted a Commercial Use Permit to operate in the magnificent, remote and awe-inspiring San Rafael Swell adjacent to Robber's Roost Country.  The "Swell" is a 75 mile long by 40 mile wide anticline, or uplift in the Earth's surface that have eroded the surrounding terrain into a spectacular labyrinth of colorful valleys, canyons, mesas and buttes.  A myriad of new places to explore are located in this wild, undiscovered landscape.  New tours for spring 2017 include The Occulus, Zero Gravity, Five-Window Arch and a new Outlaw Tour to Bill Tibbett's Cave--the last of the Robber's Roost outlaws.

    Photography Workshop with Bill Church
    May 5-7, 2017
    Due to the great success of our 2016 Photography Workshop with Bill Church Photography, we have scheduled another 3-day photography workshop at the Robber's Roost/Dirty Devil Wilderness.  During this workshop, we will cover camera functions, depth of field, night photography, light painting, digital editing, and image composition.  All experience levels are welcome.

    Spectacular Sunrise Over Robber's Roost

    Accommodations will be Basecamp-style.  We will set-up camp in a remote, wilderness location and explore from there.  It is the best of both worlds - you get to experience solitude at it's finest, but don't have to worry about fitting all of your camping and photography gear into a single backpack. Book your reservation now and save your spot for this exciting and informative adventure!

    Introduction to Technical Canyoneering
    April 28-30, 2017
    Want to explore some of the North America’s most spectacular and awe-inspiring technical canyons with names such as Leprechaun, Larry, Bluejohn, Chambers and Mindbender? Looking to have fun in the canyons, learn essential safety skills, and experience the unique camaraderie and power of the “team”?  This course will provide you a well-rounded base of technical canyoneering and canyon leadership skills that are essential for achieving these goals.

    Have We Mentioned That Canyoneering Is Fun!  

    Unlike many courses which are taught at climbing walls, this course is taught in actual technical slot canyons.  Matter of fact, the areas we teach in have some of the best technical slot canyons on the planet.  We believe there is no substitute for learning canyoneering in actual canyons.  We're confident that once you see our incredible outdoor, wilderness classroom, you too will agree.  We only have a few spots remaining for our April 28-30 course.  Register today to reserve your spot!
