Peek-a-Boo and Spooky slot canyons were some of the first slot canyons I ever visited. They remain my favorites of all that I’ve been to so far. The sinuous trails created by endless floods of water lead the imagination down a similarly winding journey; the amount of time it took to create these amazing formations, the power of nature and water, and our place in the world. It’s hard to comprehend what it took to create such beauty and the fact that we are able to experience it in such close proximity is a testament to the work of the National Parks Service over the past century.
Not to go down the even more dark and winding path of politics, but this is exactly the kind of thing we need to protect. We are not here merely for ourselves and to use this land for selfish and short-sighted purposes but to preserve the wonders of nature like this for future generations so they know why this planet is worth fighting for!
