Morning Prep

Heading out of Shot Canyon

Steep steps

Heading to pour offf

Make no missteps

A look down in to Shot

No room for error

Steps leading up the pour off



Finally back on top!

The Chocolate Drops and Orange Cliffs

A final look in to Shot Canyon

Traverse across the top to next trail down

Either up or down

Heading back down from Chimney Rock

Nothing gradual here

Zig-zagging down

Traverse the slick rock

Duh? Down some more?

Packs off for big step down

A surprise pool and a cool little sip

A short break

A shady spot in the canyon bottom for lunch

Back on the trail in the bowels of The Maze

Big Walls

On the way to The Harvest Scene (rain threatening)

A chance encounter
