  • I whit in 2016 and 2019 in 2016 a guy broke his ankle thin in 2019 we got stopped by water.
  • Slot canyons aren't just in Arizona. Texas has one too! This was a fun adventure. We weren't able to make it all the way to the Rio Grande. Eventually we hit water. Bonus that it's cooler in the canyon. The hike into the canyon gets more challenging as you go. Scrambling rocks and sliding down smooth sections got us farther. My little ones thought it was really fun. The initial walk is full of gravel but not too many obstacles. You'll start to hit some drops that become more and more challenging.
