Little Wild Horse Canyon, First Stop on Our Day Trip
A few weeks ago, we took a Saturday and went on an adventure in SouthEast Utah.
Much of Utah is empty and remote with long stretches of road, no houses, and no cell phone coverage:
Our first adventure was exploring a slot canyon. We parked the car and followed a trail to the canyon. It was clear that our path had recently been underwater. In the picture below, you can see the line of muddy plants along the side of the rocks. You can also see what happened when Isaac sat on a rock to tie his shoe:

The children thought it was great fun to find groves in the rock wall that fit their little bottoms perfectly. They had a name for them, but my mind has gone blank. <–This is why it’s important to document memories right away before you forget stuff.
I made them humor me again for a picture:
Everyone enjoyed making human bridges between the narrow walls of the canyon:
Did I mention how much my children love to climb?
They thought that these giant flakes of mud were really cool:
I love this quintessential little boy picture with his muddy jeans and his stick:
The slot canyon was an easy hike with lots of cool things to see along the way.
