MtnRanks Mondays: Because Mondays do not have to suck
The Most dreaded day of the week, Monday right? Well it doesn’t have to be.
It just takes a better state of mind and the willingness to change. The crew here at MtnRanks is committed to making Mondays better for everyone. We hit it every Monday on some sort of adventure so we can share it with you and inspire everyone that Mondays do not have to suck. If you are stuck at work in your office at the very least we hope our images give you a moment of bliss to escape the mundane.
For this #mtnranksmondays we packed up and hit the road. We haven’t received any snow in the Wasatch for some time now so the skiing is sub par. We also were keen to get some shots of our new mens flannel shirts. We saw the temps in Joe’s Valley (a popular bouldering spot in central Utah just outside Price, Utah) reaching into the upper 40’s. So we loaded up the gear for a multi adventure day and hit the road.
Within 2 hrs of driving we were there. First adventure cast a few flys on straight canyon creek. This creek that winds down from joe’s valley reservoir is what dreams are made of. Large boulders litter the creek, and the emerald green water cascades through them. Saying its beautiful is a under statement. Alas we did not land any fish, but the we caught the peacefulness of the landscape.
Adventure 2 for the day. Bouldering Joe’s valley is epic. The landscape incredible, the boulders are perfect and the sandstone is so textured and grippy its almost cheating. Joe’s is broken down into three areas left and right fork and new Joe’s. This time of yer left and right fork stay shaded pretty much all day and still have a bit of snow. New Joe’s however is the place to go. Better concentration of routes as well and sun until later in the day. We snagged a few routes and watched the sun set on this desert playground feeling, well, feeling Stoked.
