Hiking Buckskin Gulch, Utah
Light formations at the bottom of the slot canyon.
I included hikers in various pictures to convey perspsective.
Some areas of the canyon are so narrow my shoulders rubbed on both sides to squeeze through.
Our hike required crossing chilly standing pools of water every few minutes.

After two miles in a slot, the trail opens to reveal an amphitheatre.
Dramatic rock walls are seen.

Periodically the canyon walls widen and become narrow again.
Large debris brought in by a prior flash flood.
Another amphitheatre carved by erosion.
During the hike, petroglyphs can be seen.
