Julie and I ventured off on our own and did a secluded slot canyon off Hole-in-the-rock road. Not terribly technically challenging but super narrow. Plus the hike in was fun with beautiful slick rock and iron balls.
Yesterday we hired a guide for some training and exploration of the magnificent slot canyons of the Grand Staircase – Escalante National Monument. We hiked the Round Valley Draw yesterday and will explore some more on our own today.
Tuesday through Thursday this week we dropped into Halls Creek canyon along the Capitol Reef Waterpocket Fold. We hiked in the first day to setup camp, then hiked the narrows on day two. An oasis in the desert.
