Remember a few weeks ago when the Bureau of Land Management placed that video on YouTube promoting Paria Canyon/Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness Area?
Remember all the href="http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/blogshiking/54209582-150/area-arizona-video-wilderness.html.csp" target="_blank">safety warnings issued in the video? Now we know why.
The Associated Press reports href="http://www.kfoxtv.com/news/ap/transportation/2-texas-men-rescued-from-arizona-utah-hike/nPN8C/" target="_blank">two Texas men had to be rescued in Paria Canyon. One of the hikers had a medical problem. It's a reminder that the thing about wilderness areas is problems become emergencies easily.

An American Trail
Departing from Utah for a moment, check out what someone wants to do back east.
Someone wants to connect the North Country National Scenic Trail, which runs from North Dakota to New York, to the Appalachian Trail, which runs from Maine to Georgia,href="http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/world/54371715-68/trail-north-appalachian-hiking.html.csp" target="_blank"> according to the Associated Press. The trails are separated by 40 miles.
The National Park Service is doing a feasibility study, the AP reports. Congress will need to give final approval.
