Little Wild Horse Canyon
Little Wild Horse is a very accessible slot canyon with a paved road leading right to the parking lot so in the spring and summer it is packed with people, it's hot in the summer but the high was only 40F today. As I arrived at the entrance to the canyon a sole hiker was emerging, he had done the complete Wild Horse/Bell Canyon loop and reported that there was no standing water which was great news. After that I had the whole place to myself.

|The light was quite good but probably better to be there before or at noon for the best angle.|
We backtracked down Little Wild Horse then headed up Bell Canyon

We walked probably 3/4 of a mile up Bell Canyon before reaching a pile of rubble, Biff really tried to find a way but there wasn't one. It looks like you could go around left but it wasn't possible.
