Slot canyon locations?
« on: May 24, 2004, 03:29:23 PM »

[font color=\'#000000\']I think asking such a question in a public forum is a bit naive. There are literally thousands of slot canyons throughout the Southwest, each with its own unique characteristics. Many (most?) of them are not readily accessible. Some of those described as "technical" are sometimes visited by experienced canyoneers, while others require a good amount of off-trail hiking, even swimming, to get to.
Kelsey has documented a good selection of them (and I agree with your observations about his ratings and otherwise quirky descriptions and maps) but he sees them as a hiker, not a photographer.

[font color=\'#000000\']Among my absolute favorite places to shoot are slot canyons.  I've been to a lot of the ones listed in Kelsey's book and sometimes I don't agree with his esthetic evaluations or his difficulty ratings and I'm sure there's still places he doesn't cover at all (yet).

Anybody know of any particularly cool slot canyons that are maybe a little under-rated by Kelsey or that he doesn't list at all?  Anything I just gotta see that I might not have yet?[/font]
