For reasons that escape me, I didn't wear my camelbak and only brought a small bottle of Gatorade with me. I figured I would scope it out, head to Goblin Valley State Park to make my camp for the night (and grab a shower) then come back either later today or early tomorrow. I still should have brought more water than I did, because it's hot and dry and the canyon is not unlike an oven..
I encounter my first significant narrow..
Imagine this slot being blasted with water, debris being blasted through, flying everywhere. Yeah, it's a dry-weather hike..
The canyon turns to this..
Yeah, right!? Pretty cool to see what sandy water has done to the rock...
I take a sip of water, holding some of it in my mouth (as that seems to help quench my thirst more than if I simply swallow) and am at half-a-bottle. Time to turn around for now. When I come back, I'll bring plenty of water and some food as well.
It is good to be right here, on this day, right now. There is everything to smile about..
