Day 2– Slab Canyon

My trip highlight was expected to be Slab Canyon, a canyon I stumbled across and named after finding it on Google Earth. It was amazing! We literally spent 3 hours walking through narrows. The reason we spent so long in there is that we had to do 4 bypasses. This canyon is non-stop dry falls, small climbs, and polished narrows. I hiked it at the beginning of the trip because it was 19.3 miles RT. And I knew that later in the trip I might be too tired to do it, and I didn’t want to miss it. I’ve got 300 photos to choose from, but how do you choose when there are endless narrows? These 4 pictures I’m sharing are almost like teasers. This will be a fun report to write later. What an excellent canyon! I will provide a map to find it with my report. I will also explain why I named it Slab Canyon.

This is a reverse dry fall. It's on the opposite side of where it should be heading down canyon
