We'd been to the ghost town of Sego before, but we'd never taken the trail all the way to the end. It wasn't our original plan, but it ended up being a good one.
Niko only had the morning to do trails as he had to head back to Denver by late morning. Our plan was to go out to the trails around the Dewey Bridge and show him some other scenery for his first time to Moab, and then he could go home from there. We drove almost all the way out to Fisher Tower to find the road closed for a race, so we turned around and headed back to town. We ended up wasting a lot of the morning, though the drive was nice (as always).
Our plan was to still keep him near I-70, and we remembered that we never did Sego Canyon. So, we headed out there and made it to the trail when it was mid-morning. Unfortunately, that didn't leave Niko enough time to do the trail so he had to leave us.
We explored the buildings in the town and walked all over the place, enjoying our last day in Utah for 2017. We even walked around the cemetery. Then we headed up the canyon. We saw some people on bicycles, but otherwise had it to ourselves.
It's very remote, and it was peaceful. We spent what felt like a long time in the canyon, and then suddenly we were climbing out of it. It looked like we'd be on the road for a while, and then it ended at Ute tribal land and we were done.
It was flat and relaxing there, though the views weren't that great. Still, it was noon so that meant lunch. We hung out for a bit, but didn't stay too long before heading back down. We decided to check out Sagers Canyon before heading back to Moab.
