Before Louie had surgery we went with our friends to South Palm Wash to hike through the slot canyon. We accessed the wash at mile marker 38 on highway 22, which is the route to the Calcite Mine. We drove down into the wash about 1/2 mile, parked and walked up the canyon.

Palm Canyon Wash
Beginning the Slot Canyon
John showing the width
Most of the canyon was pretty easy walking
With some narrow parts’
And some really neat walls
A little bit of scrambling
We think the dry waterfall is up there somewhere but we couldn’t find the path.
Another dead end
It get pretty cold in the canyons unless you can stay in the direct sun, so we called it a day,
Louie continues to do really well, every once in a while he gives a little yelp, but I believe it is the stitches drying and poking him. Skip watched the dogs today, while I walked to the lake bed, I am trying to get a four or five mile walk in every other day. Skip is riding his bike, yesterday he rode 16 miles which is the farthest he’s ridden in years. All in the name of staying healthy.
alot of bloggers have visited the Slot Canyon area..thanks for sharing your photos! glad to hear that Louie is on the mend!ReplyDelete
I think we did that South Palm Wash as well & also remember looking for something we couldn't find. Know what you mean about the colder air in the Canyon shadow areas. Brrrrrr. Good to hear Louie is well on the mend. Wished I could get my legs to take me for long walks like that again.......:((ReplyDelete
Great shots!! Good to hear Louie is doing better.ReplyDelete
Congrats on all the exercise you two are doing. A little sore after riding 16 miles, Skip? I am soooo impressed.ReplyDelete
