Vaughn Hadenfeldt has been guiding in the Four Corners region for over 25 years, and is the owner and guide of Far Out Expeditions (FOE) in Bluff, Utah. While owning and operating a mountaineering store on the western slope of Colorado, he traveled with a friend to the canyon country in southeast Utah and was captivated by the incredible archaeological treasures of the region. Vaughn made use of his studies in anthropology and his passion for hiking in the backcountry to create a guide business that specializes in sharing his knowledge of the cultural and natural histories of the area while providing a fun and fascinating backcountry experience for his guests. Named as one of the Best Guides in the World by National Geographic Adventure Magazine in 2009, he is widely renowned and has been written about in books and magazines published around the world. Vaughn and his wife have lived in Bluff for 13 years.
He's spent years in the field seeking out the sometimes subtle, elusive, less visited remains of prehistoric cultures. Vaughn is a recognized authority in magazine articles including National Geographic and books including "In Search of the Old Ones" and the tale of his latest adventure "Sandstone Spine: Seeking the Anasazi on the First Traverse of Comb Ridge", both by David Roberts
...
To quote David Roberts' "In Search of the Old Ones", "Nuances of canyonscape, vestigial Anasazi ruins, all-but-vanished panels of prehistoric rock art, mountain lion tracks, inscriptions scratched by cowboys with bullet lead on sandstone walls a century ago - all these prodigies of the outback Vaughn manages to discover in places where I would have passed them blithely and ignorantly by."
Hiking Comb Ridge - National Geographic Adventure Magazine

Vaughn Hadenfeldt, 55, is the founder and proprietor of Far Out Expeditions, based in Bluff, Utah.His job involves taking clients to ruins and rock-art sites that he has already scouted.
...
Vaughn couldn't resist exclaiming, "I saw it too!"
...
That morning, with only daypacks, Vaughn and I set out, each on our own loop, for what would turn out to be eight-hour excursions among the canyon bends and alcoves, while Greg stayed closer to camp, composing camera portraits of this extremely photogenic stretch of Comb Ridge.
...
At camp, I swapped discoveries with Vaughn, who had just arrived, red-faced and tired.On an equally demanding loop downstream to the north, he too had found marvels of rock art, including one crowded frieze of petroglyphs,perhaps a hundred different figures,25 feet (8 meters) up a vertical cliff where the ground on which the artists once stood had eroded over the ages, stranding the panel in thin air.
...
Greg fell awkwardly and screamed in pain; Vaughn and I hurried to his side.
...
Would Vaughn and I have to hike out to the nearest road, half a day away, flag down a car, and arrange for a helicopter rescue?Could this casual mishap spell failure for our entire expedition?
Vaughn fished out his medical kit and gave Greg 800 milligrams of ibuprofen.
...
Vaughn and I would surge ahead, then stop and wait for our gimpy companion.
...
Vaughn, for one, had wanted to climb it for at least 20 years.Though its summit, at a mere 5,111 feet (1,558 meters)above sea level, is not even close to the highest point on Comb Ridge, the Mule Ear soars above its neighboring crests and is the most spectacular of all the "teeth" on the 120-mile-long (193-kilometer-long) massif.
Now, with Greg limping behind, we made our way slowly up toward that graceful spire.When we had almost reached its base, Vaughn, in the lead, rounded a small extrusion in the sandstone and nearly ran smack into a desert bighorn sheep.Only seven or eight yards (six or seven meters) away, the animal,a mature male with a full curl to its horns,jerked his head up in fright and bounded downhill.We watched as it clattered expertly across the slickrock and, in a matter of seconds, disappeared from view.
Vaughn could not contain his murmurs of surprise and joy.An erstwhile hunter of deer and elk, he had stopped going after big game many years ago, but still loved nothing more than watching animals in the wild.
...
After Vaughn and I headed back to camp, Greg devoted hours to the effort, circling far afield to scramble down to the Chinle itself, then scouting a route up to the secretive buildings.

According to Vaughn Hadenfeldt, member of the local Canyon Country Heritage Association in Bluff, Utah, "BLM is not doing its job to manage ORV use on our public lands in southeastern Utah, and such use is out of control.
Salt Lake Tribune - Trailing the Anasazi

The idea for the trip arose in January 2003 when Roberts and good friend and canÂyoneering guide Vaughn Hadenfeldt spied Comb Ridge while driving across the Navajo Reservation in northern Arizona. Hadenfeldt, owner of Far Out Expeditions in Bluff, wondered out loud if anybody had walked the more than 100 miles of
...
It was a ploy by Hadenfeldt to get Roberts interested.
...
For Hadenfeldt, the journey gave him an opportunity to spend quality time on the portion of Comb Ridge in Arizona. "I had explored a great deal of the upper third of the Ridge in Utah.I was excited that we might discover more [ruins] sites on the Navajo Reservation part," Hadenfeldt said."We kind of got suckered in with an incredible ruin at the start, but then there wasn't a thing for quite a ways." Hadenfeldt, who would like to hike the Ridge again, said he would have spent more time exploring the side canyons. "We did a good job of poking around considering the time we had, but that is some big country and we didn't explore as much as I had planned to," he said.
...

...
"The headquarters in Window Rock might give you a permit, but that doesn't mean the people who live on the reservation will accept it," Hadenfeldt said."Basically, if they ask you to leave, you need to leave." Hadenfeldt said he hopes readers of the book will develop a deeper appreciation for the Anasazi history on Comb Ridge.He knows some will be drawn to the area by his book, but he hopes they will leave things alone. "It is a tough issue.I've already witnessed an increase of information about Comb Ridge and I'm on the bad list of some of my archaeology friends," he said.
Upper Ticaboo and Bluff Explorations, Utah

On our second hiking day, seven of us joined a professional tour of petroglyph art at a site below Cedar Mesa, led by Vaughn Hadenfeldt of Far Out Expeditions. He was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the rock art, and the participants saw much more than we usually discover on our own. For details and rates for Vaughn's tours, see his web site, www.faroutexpeditions.com .

In the Cottonwood drainage, we found a beautiful two-room ruin and a spectacular granary cemented into a promontory point, but missed a great deal also, as Vaughn pointed out later.
