|This canyon is in the southern part of ABDSP, & sports a nice slot canyon. Part of the trek involves walking along a jeep rd., but thankfully on this trip we avoided sharing w/vehicles. We climbed out of the slot & made a lollipop loop out of the deal, so re-joined the rd. near the end point.
On the way down the rd.:

Since it was a short hike we had a little time leftover so we finally checked out "Well of the 8 Echoes." Not really worth it as it's basically just a metal pipe that you can't really see down into.

Then we drove up Indian Gorge Rd. & checked out "the big rock". The rd. up into the gorge has gotten really crappy & our driver wasn't too pleased.

Home is where the hiking is.
