Adventures In North America's Wildest Places
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!

Come and explore one of America’s most beautiful and amazing wilderness areas; a vast and extraordinary landscape of sweeping slickrock, beautifully sculpted sandstone cliffs and narrow twisting canyons that have challenged and amazed wilderness adventurers since the late 1800’s. Our adventures through this explorer’s paradise take us through some of the last known places to be mapped in the United States. Travelling through this region provides a feeling of remoteness, ruggedness and awe that are unmatched in the modern world. For many, their first experience in canyon country is transformational in nature. It becomes an intrinsic part of their heart and soul that serves to draw them back time and time again.

Exciting news for us at Get In The Wild. We recently learned that one of our canyoneering videos will be featured on the Discovery Channel this fall. They are producing a new wilderness survival program that will highlight a lone survival...ist that is dropped off somewhere in the middle of nowhere. This individual will be given 100 hours to successfully escape his situation. Discovery requested to use our video to highlight some of the hazards he or she might face. Pretty cool!

As yoga steadily gains popularity, yoga studios are saturating the market like Starbucks. The abundance of studios makes it tempting to keep your practice confined within four walls. While many yoga studios are cozy, serene and welcoming places, studios can't compete with the awe-inspiring beauty of nature that is ever present. As Labor Day approaches, you may be looking towards the fall but don't discount summer yet! There is still plenty of time left to take your practice outside into the days of summer. And there are plenty of reasons to do so.
Now that I have convinced you to get outside, you might be wondering where or how to practice outside. Here are my suggestions:
Bio: Melissa is looking forward to taking her yoga practice outside this fall at the Red Rock Yoga and Hiking Retreat in otherworldly Goblin Valley, Utah with Get In The Wild Adventures. Besides practicing yoga with goblins, Melissa founded and directs the Northwest Yoga Conference which takes place in the Seattle, WA area each February.
Great news for fans of the beautiful and awe-inspiring red-rock canyons of Southern Utah. We just received our 2012 Commercial Use Permit for Capitol Reef National Park. We have a variety of exciting canyoneering trips planned which include some of the best slot-canyons in the Southwest.
For those unfamiliar with the park, it is characterized by colorful sandstone formations, cliffs, canyons, ridges, buttes and monoliths. It’s most stunning geologic feature is a 100 mile long warp in the Earth’s crust known as the Waterpocket Fold. This 65 million year old fold is the largest exposed monocline in the North America. It is comprised of younger and older layers of the Earth’s crust which were folded over each other in an S-shape. This striking geologic feature was probably caused by the same collision of continental plates that created the Rocky Mountains. It has weathered and eroded over melinnea to expose a fascinating amalgam of brilliantly colored sandstone cliffs and canyons, gleaming white domes and contrasting layers of intricately shaped rock and sand.
North American Wilderness Leadership School is looking for qualified instructors, interns and assistants to help us with our 2012 wilderness education programs. We have a diverse list of sixteen different wilderness education courses and guided trips that include Alpine Mountaineering, Canyoneering, Backpacking, Scrambling, Winter Mountaineering, Photography, Natural History and Wilderness Leadership. If you have an interest in helping others learn essential outdoor skills, are looking to improve your own skills, or are interested in a career in wilderness education, please contact us at:
