Entrance to the canyon
Partway up the canyon, a downward view
From the guzzler, looking up at the saddle
At the saddle, the summit is off to the right. The immediate slope is above us
The summit as seen from the false summit
From the summit, looking down back at our ascent ridge and the saddle, plus lots of beautiful mountain scenery
Southwest view, with the Vopoki Ridge in the back
On the descent, looking down over the rocky maze we need to thread to get back to the saddle
Same vantage, now slightly right. The guzzler is barely visible below in the canyon
Scott and Tanya Kelley walking down from the saddle
The other Scotts checking out the guzzler
Scott, Tanya and Scott Peavy marching out.
My pants after two days of butt-scooting. Everyone got a free show!
