Slot Canyons

Documentaries and reality shows about slot canyons are rather fascinating. I have never been in one before and I am not so sure I would like to.

On one hand, I can only imagine how humbling it must be making your way through these majestic gorges.

On the other hand, the dangers involved may not be worth the experience. Slot canyons are created due to water rushing through the rocks and eroding the material. This usually results in a small, but very deep gulch which still functions as a passage for water.

Rainfall, whether that is local or even in the far distance, can cause flash flooding. What is a dry, beautiful slot canyon one moment can suddenly turn into a dangerous nightmare. Several hikers were surprised by a flash flood and never made it out of a slot canyon. Therefore, a warning is in order.

Slot canyons can be found in several parts of the world. The longest slot canyon on the globe is Buckskin Gulch which is located in Utah. This state is also where most of the slot canyons in the U.S. can be found. Another state to visit and where you can admire these wonders of nature is Arizona.

Caution is advised, so be careful!
