┌─────────────────────

00:04:48 Hiking through Spooky Gulch Slot Canyon

└─Spooky Gulch Slot Canyon────

Spooky Gulch Slot Canyon is a great slot canyon for first timers, or those who are claustrophobic. It’s an easy walk on mostly flat ground, with a wide floor and far apart walls. Nonetheless, the scenery is great!!!

┌─────────────────────

00:08:30 Wandering Around Lost? Yep.

└─Wandering Around Lost─────

We climbed out of Spooky Gulch Slot Canyon and proceeded to get lost. This meant aimlessly hiking for miles until we found Peek-A-Boo Slot Canyon.

┌─────────────────────

00:09:23 Squeezing through Peek-A-Boo Slot Canyon

└─Peek-A-Boo Slot Canyon─────

Unlike Spooky Gulch Slot Canyon, Peek-A-Boo Slot Canyon is very narrow, and requires squeezing through numerous parts. There’s obstacles to climb over or even under. For those who want “the full experience” and are not claustrophobic, you may love this canyon – I did.
