the fly off before remembering to take a picture.

The three of us hiked together for about 20 minutes and then split up when, about 5 minutes after entering Peek-a-boo canyon, the terrain got too difficult for Tabitha to feel comfortable with. The rain had accumulated in depressions, forming muddy puddles which sometimes had bits of unidentifiable debris floating in them. At places where the walls were further apart than about three feet it was necessary to step into the puddles in order to reach ledges, which were sometimes at about chest level. The mud stuck to every inch of your shoe and any portion of your leg that it touched, sometimes resulting in you having a 5 lb “boot” of mud encasing each foot from mid-calf down. It’s hard enough to scramble on top of a ledge that is chest high, and even harder when you weigh 10 lbs more than usual! But, in my opinion, that just added to the fun!
