Narrow Slot Canyons — 20 Comments

  1. Hi Mary! WOW, the textures and contrasting edges of these tight spaces are GORGEOUS. Ya know, I have to be honest….I don’t look at old photos, especially those of my childhood. I tend to shun looking at those photos because my memory is SO VIVID, that I often rely on certain moments that come back to me with the glimmer of the noon sun, that often triggers great memory. I also have those old photos, including when I got married, ALL PILED UP IN A GREAT BIG, MESSY HEAP that I don’t even want to touch! LOL!!!!!!!!

    I should however, look at those photos. It’s important to remember with your eyes once in a while.

    • I really want to go back to some of these canyons and take real photos, now that I kinda know what I’m doing. Lol I have a bunch of prints from when my boys were growing up. Need to sift through them some day.

  2. it was great to use your time machine today :o) Thanks! I like it to watch old photos… except my own old photos… it eggsactly happened what my dad promised me once: later you will laugh at yourself with the crazy stuff you wear… true. LOL

    • Well I’m glad you liked the time machine trip, it was fun for me too. And yes, I have looked at older photos of me and thought…..what was I thinking?!

  3. Mary, there are some days when I LIVE down memory lane! When it’s all just too much and I long for my old camping/hiking weekends, driving where the wind took us, discovering new open roads that led to uninhabited adventures. I loved it. Puppy Torrey is beyond adorable!!! Those canyons are amazing, I’d love to be there to get the feel of their awesomeness.

    • Memory lane can be a nice place, but for me, I don’t want to live there very long. These canyons have an amazing feel, you can just sense the oldness.

  4. Hello, these are all beautiful images. I would like to hike in these place like the Gulch. Torrey was a beautiful puppy dog, she still is beautiful. Great photos. Enjoy your day!

    • I’m so glad you like the photos, and are able to enjoy a small vacation. That’s actually the best compliment I like to hear, that someone enjoyed the ride.

  5. Wait. What? You actually WALK between those rocks? OMG my claustrophobia is acting up just looking at the photos, but I loved looking at them. AND I love to look at older photos of my dogs, don’t they just take you back?

  6. I did one on slots too, but I’ve found I love canyon hiking in general and sometimes avoid slots. I do love technical canyoneering but don’t have the equipment so have to go guided. Great post!
