Take in the Views

beautiful canyon. Here you will want to stay
on the left hillside as their are two washes
below that are difficult to negotiate. You will
soon begin to see the center of the canyon
become a gorgeous meadow that sprawls
across two thirds of the canyon floor.

into two forks. To reach that fork you will
