Peek-A-Boo Canyon Utah

 We arrived in Kanab on April 27. The intent was to explore some of the slot canyons here by hiking to and through them.  That is easier said than done!  Access to many of these canyons requires knowledge and skills that I don’t have.  Namely, knowing what you are doing while driving through deep sand.  Sure, I’ve got a high clearance four wheel drive truck, that I know how to drive.  What I don’t know is how and when do I deflate my tires, avoiding the specter of blocking the road because I am hopelessly stuck.

That is precisely why we contacted Dreamland Tours, out of Kanab, Utah.  They offer a variety of tours throughout the area and their Peek-A-Boo Canyon was perfect for Steff and I.  We joined Natalie, our tour guide, and Alan and Melinda retired academics from Berkeley, and Margarita a woman traveling on her own, for an enjoyable morning adventure  

Once in the canyon, words began to fail.  So I will leave these here with little commentary.
