Even though we ventured out to Lick Wash directly from our Butch Cassidy 10K, the experience was remarkable enough to deserve its own post.
Lick Wash is stunning, but in the middle of nowhere. We drove all through Zion National Park, through Kanab, up Johnson's Canyon, and many lone miles along the dusty Skutumpah road before finally reaching the trailhead. Evening was approaching by the time we finally began our hike, but the scenery was worth it.
A single key, half buried in the dust, that looked so remarkably like a Honda Odyssey car key that we finally realized that it was our car key. Apparently it had fallen out of Jason's pocket on our journey into the canyon and we never even knew it was gone. We feel so remarkably blessed to have noticed it on the return. The wash at this spot was so wide that we easily could have traveled any other number of routes. Compared to the grandeur of our surroundings, this key was so miniscule that it really was miraculous that we spotted it.
