Narrow Slot Canyons
I had to pull out the way back machine to get photos for this weeks Daily Post prompt of Narrow. Spaces are wide open here, so not much to shoot that would fit narrow.
When I saw the photo prompt, I immediately thought of narrow slot canyons. When we still had the house, and I still had a regular job, we would spend long weekends in the red rock deserts of Utah. We explored, and hiked so many beautiful places. We would go to a different corner each time we went camping. One of my favorites was Buckskin Gulch. Down by the Grand Staircase-Escalante, this is the longest slot canyon in the world. 12 miles long. We didn’t hike the whole way, but we went pretty far and it was amazing. This photo was taken May of 2011. Torrey was 6 months old.
I would love to do this hike again, and pulling out these photos makes me want to even more.
This photo is from October of 2008. Waaaayyyyyy before I had a good camera. This is Pleasant Creek, which is on the back side of Capitol Reef. This was a favorite hiking and camping spot.
This slot canyon is off the Burr Trail road. It is very short, yet very cool. We stopped here often when camping in this area. This photo is from June 2009.
And these photos have nothing to do with narrow, but when I was looking at old photos I found these. This is February of 2011. Torrey had been with us about 3 weeks, and was 3 1/2 months old.
Roxy was still unsure about her. But Squeeeee look at that face!
Maybe Torrey was unsure about us? Not really, I think she knew she was in for a fun life.
The Dogwood 52 photo prompt is Portrait-Street candid. Ok, that is impossible for me. So instead, I have lake candid. These kids were having a blast playing in the lake the other day.
Do you go back in time looking at old photos? Do you just love walking down memory lane?
