Spring, Summer & Fall (~April-October)
During the Spring, Summer, and Fall months the Tiny Home can be found at the Kigalia Campground just on the boarder of the Bears Ears National Monument. This placement is in partnership with the Manti-La Sal National Forest.
Kigalia Campground, around 8,000 feet in elevation, is located in Elk Ridge, neighboring the Bears Ears National Monument, and by Kigalia Canyon Trail one of the access points to Dark Canyon. Kigalia, or Kaa’yelii, was a Navajo who lived and herded sheep in the area in the late 1800’s. This site provides great access for those looking to do a through bikepacking trip from the Abajos to Cedar Mesa. Additionally, this is a great location for those looking for a secluded basecamp for exploration throughout the area.
Spring & Fall
In the transition times (early-Spring, mid-fall) when the Tiny Home is being shifted to/from its Winter season location it can be found in Montezuma Canyon just 30 minutes south of Monticello, Utah. The canyon walls are sandstone cliffs, and if you have a good eye you can spot moki steps and cliff dwellings tucked away in the canyon walls. The canyon is a gravel road that starts a few miles south of Monticello and can continue on to Bluff, Blanding, and Hovenweep National Monument. This is a great base for those looking to escape the spring and fall frosts, and explore a taste for what the desert has to offer.
During the Winter months the Tiny Home is placed at Buckboard Campground in partnership with the Manti-La Sal National Forest. In the winter Buckboard Campground is a 1.6 mile trip in on a groomed cross country trail. Along the route there are various options for winter recreation opportunities including backcountry skiing, snowshoeing, fat biking, and snowmobiling.
