28. That's exactly what I thought as well

I have been to “the Loop” on the Colorado in the Canyonlands , which looks similar, both from the rim and floating on a raft trip from Moab to Lake Powell. Great trip!!!

Camped on the beach on the right side.

I would highly recommend Chesler Park in the Needles. One of my most favorite places on the planet. Been there 6-7 times at least. Can be done on a decent day hike from Elephant Hill trailhead. 10-15 miles depending what else you do. Definitely Joint Trail, but could do Druid Arch as well, but that’s a long day. Backpacking for a few days in there is well worth it.

I don’t know how to put photos up. But there’s a look.

There a lot of great, less visit areas around there, or there used to be. A great resource is the guide book “Hiking Southwest Canyon Country” by Sandra Hinchman. Extensive coverage of the Four Corners’ Canyons.

I posted this version because the cover photo is of one of my most epic journeys: Buckskin Gulch/Paria Canyon. We realized it was the cover photo the night before we went in, and I was looking at the photo credits and was excited to tell my group we were hiking the cover. Sick slot canyons. Buckskin is claimed to be the longest slot canyon on the planet.

This is a good video showing the trip. You have to hike it in one day because of flash flood concerns. And definitely check the weather. It’s permitted now, but wasn’t when we went. We did the 45 miles in a leisurely 5 days, after the 15 mile first day.

Sorry so long, but it’s dear to me, that country. Thanks Joe!!!
