    I just hiked this phenomenal canyon in Capitol Reef National Park last Saturday. Except for two small spots, it is too wide to consider a true slot canyon, so I decided to make a thread for this canyon alone. The hike is about 6.5 miles from one trailhead to the other. I had my wife drop me off at one and pick up at the other. There were a couple of exposed spots on the hike. The worst was at a waterfall where I had to sit down on a ledge, hang my feet over the side and drop about 6-8 feet into a shallow pool of water with a sandy bottom. I loved this hike and this canyon. All shot with the E-M1 and O12-40.

    Thanks! We're going there in a month and looking for things to see and do. How hot was it?

    Low 80's sounds hot to me! What'll it be like mid May? When it gets a little closer I'll PM you for more details if you don't mind. Sounds like you know the areas. We're staying in Torrey.
