Day 5– Nova Slots 5 & 6

Today we returned to our exploration of the canyons in between Nova Canyon and Nemo Canyon by doing a loop hike of what I have labeled as Nova Slots 5 & 6.  This is the one canyon which will probably be assigned a different name later in view of something significant that we found in there that I will report on later (not a natural bridge, in case you were wondering).  These were two very interesting canyons.  There were three very nice slots in Nova Slot 5 and one great slot in Nova Slot 6.  I thought the best way to showcase these two canyons in advance of my report was to simply share one picture taken in each of the four slots.  By the way, I plan to wrap up my exploration of this area by covering Nova Slots 1-4 on another day of this trip.  Maps will be provided later so that you can see exactly where we have been hiking.  Keep in mind you can click on all pictures I am posting here on my Blog to see larger versions of them.
