19 years. Yikes! We are getting old!
My wife likes to hike, but she typically hates my kind of hikes. I'm a bushwhacker. She likes trails. I hate trails. But once a year I give in and let her choose where to go. This year she chose a place that I knew nothing about. She didn't know anything about it either. We were going in blind. I'm not sure what either of us expected, but the end result was pretty darned good. In fact, it was downright impressive. I need to try to get to this area a bit more often!
It was a bit chilly, but once we got walking it wasn't bad. Once we entered the slot, it was rather comfy.
I can just picture in my mind young natives running, yelling, and playing all day long down in this labyrinth. Amazing.
Some of you may recognize this area. Others might not. It's fairly popular -- but not on this day. We had it all to ourselves.
Enjoy some pics.
