Bell and Little Wild Horse Canyons

Rachel in Bell Canyon, a somewhat disappointing slot

At the top of Little Wild Horse Canyon

In the narrows of Little Wild Horse

A dry trip - if you make the right moves

Canyon formation

Lovely striations

Rachel showing off her bridging prowess

Scrambling around another pool

Gorgeous light

Chillin' out

Camp at the Little Wild Horse car park!

Wild Wild West

Baptist Draw and Upper Chute Canyon

Approach to Baptist Draw - via the "teepee" hill

Avoiding the mud

When there's this much water, the mud becomes a bit of a moot point

Dodgy high bridging

First abseil in Baptist Draw

Rachel on the final abseil into Chute Canyon

Upper Chute Canyon, a spectacular slot

Gorgeous formations

More lovely narrows

However, there's some chilly wading as well

And some interesting moves

From camp, we did a short walk/scramble to an overlook of Family Butte
