I hope next time big split rock slot canyon guys will act more like kids, just because you body doesn't bend the same as it used Gets tiring after awhile. Oops, another boulder that has fallen. Yes It was when we had to crawl as well that we turned back.

This is one of the best hikes he has had since we left home. Only one brave soul climbed up to see if we could make it A fun adventure, especially for kids, this hike includes perhaps the longest slot canyon in the desert, accented at the end by a huge split mountain only several feet wide that hikers nimbly negotiate in order to see a San Andreas Fault fracture up close and personal.

Off to another canyon Some more great shots of the upper canyon. Ended up at this tall, rocky, dry fall Take the canyon to the left. Some places a few got a hand up Tight enough?
Someone said they could see light at the end of the tunnel though. The fault goes through here and helped create the Painted Canyon.
This area is dog friendly and has no ladders so we figured it would be a good outing for Gizmo. Gizmo had a blast here. The picture below is of the overhang's ceiling.
