My daughter and I used Paria Outfitters to guide us to the remote area of White Pockets in the Vermillion Cliffs. Although Susan and Steve Dobson(the owners) were unable to guide us we had a photo guide to help us to not only get to the area but helped us immensely with the photography particularly during Sunset. The trip out... More

While we were on our day long trip with Steve Dodson of Paria Outpost and Outfitters to Coyote Buttes South and White Pocket I sometimes wondered if we were still on earth itself - the landscape was SO unique !! After traveling 90 minutes off road(and I don't mean a graded dirt road) , we reached our first destination. Steve... More

We have incredible souvenirs our our one half day hike with Susan. The landscape is one of our favourite in the world ( and we do travel a lot) and Susan is the an amazing guide: knowledgeable, sensitive, intelligent and witty. We will certainly come back a day for another amazing adventure. Thank you Susan:-)

We stayed here one night while we were spending 3 days out at the Vermillion Cliffs. Only 1 room is available, so book early. Susan prepared a delicious, home cooked meal the next morning. I attached a picture showing the room which is very basic, but you can’t beat their hospitality, shower and a bed in the middle of nowhere!... More

We spent 4 weeks in the US visiting NPs including Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion, Capitol Reef, Arches, Yellowstone and Grand Tetons but our day in the Vermilion Cliffs area with Steve Dodson ranks as one of the best of the whole trip. We especially enjoyed the remoteness and lack of other tourists (S. Coyote Buttes permits are limited to 20... More

Susan and Steve guided us for two days through the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. They were the first outfitters in the area and know the best sights and sites, whether you are a photographer, hiker, or nature lover. Their knowledge, skill, and welcoming attitude is invaluable. When we told them that we had not obtained... More

My wife, son (13yo), and I toured White Pocket and the South Coyote Buttes with Steve Dodson on April 10 and it was truly a one-of-a-kind experience! Just getting to the sites on the unmarked, sandy roads would have been impossible for us without a strong 4WD and an experienced guide like Steve who knows those roads like the back... More

We hiked Wire pass to Whitehouse yesterday and used Paria Outpost for the shuttle service. Not only was Steve on time but he was friendly and full of great information about the area. I have been reading and prepping for this hike for a while but as we got out of the shuttle, Steve said 'just remember-right and then left,'... More

We could not have had a better experience and it was one that we could not have managed on our own!!! Steve was the best guide taking us to places and formations we never would have found by ourselves. In fact, we had been to South Coyote Buttes on another trip and the places he showed us were undiscovered by... More

My husband and I spent my 50th birthday in one of the most amazing places on earth, guided by a man with remarkable knowledge of the often overlooked but utterly awe-inspiring South Coyote Buttes. We are experienced hikers, comfortable on our feet but not so much behind the wheel of a 4WD vehicle on deep sandy roads. So we decided... More
