On May 13, 2006, Tracy and I finally made it to the Escalante National Monument in southern

Utah.  We had been in the Monument a few times, but we hadn't done any real hiking there.

So we decided to hit the REALLY narrow slot canyons of Spooky (Google Map) and Peek-a-

boo Gulches.  And they were REALLY narrow.  Most of the time I had to carry my small

camelback in front of me because the canyons weren't wide enough to wear the pack.  We

started out down the Dry Fork of the Coyote Gulch trail, and from there we went up Peek-a-

boo and then across the desert to Spooky, and then we took Spooky back down to Dry Fork.  It

was only about 3 miles round-trip, but it was a great hike.  We didn't see may people, even

though the trailhead was really crowded when we arrived.  And the weather was very forgiving

that day.  Of course, even if it had been hot, the slot canyons were so narrow that it would

keep it fairly cool.  But this was a great first hike into a true slot canyon.  We camped that night

in the Dixie National Forest just north of Escalante.  And we found a great car camping site on

the side of a lake at almost 10,000 feet.  It was great to get to 10,000 feet...winter's almost

gone!  And then we drove out the next day around Box-Death Hollow Wilderness.
