DV Fall 2016 Day 4: Funeral Slot Canyon

For our last day of hiking, we did a hike of Funeral Slot Canyon along with some of the surrounding areas.  It had been six years since I first hiked Funeral Slot Canyon and introduced it to the world by means of my published report.  This will be a report that I will update in the near future by adding some additional photographs as well as some pictures of interesting formations from nearby areas.  I had a lot of other hikes planned for this trip, but because the weather was cold and a few roads were washed out (such as Harry Wade Road), I had to scale back my hiking plans for this trip.  I hope to make up for that in the Spring of next year.  I had excellent hikes planned in the Owlsheads and Grapevines which I couldn’t get to as planned.

Back hiking through Funeral Slot Canyon once again after six years.

One of my favorite spots in the canyon.

The largest natural tunnel ever found in Death Valley is in a nearby area
