We spent a good part of our Christmas day hiking a slot canyon that is off part of the highway 78. We entered the slot from Borrego Mountain Wash. Skip and I hiked part of the slot in 2010, but we had entered from the other end.

The Slot Canyon
Nicole is going to catch it.
The slot gets pretty narrow
The slot canyons are formed by erosion of both water and wind, must have been a big wind to move these rocks.
A really amazing canyon.
About of a third of a mile the other way are the Borrego Mountain Wind Caves, which are one pretty cool, not as big as the ones at Split Mountain but fun to climb
Even John and Nicole’s dog Nibs had a good climb
And what a view from the top.
Our cars are across the wash on top of the Borrego Mountain Drop Off, it was quite a climb back up after a long hike.
The weather has not been very good the last few days, we have had some really windy days, and the nights have been really cold. We would move on but the weather seems to be the same everywhere right now, and there are a few more hikes we want to do here.
Sophie has to be really close, so that the second Louie lets go of the bone, she can grab it and run. She has her own but naturally his is better for some reason.
