Slots canyons of Utah: spooky and peek-a-boo gulch

April 2012

While in Bryce, we also had about a two and a half mile hike down to two spectacular slot canyons, Spooky and Peek-a-boo Gulch, about twenty-six miles along on a dirt road called “Hole-in-the-Rock Road,” south of the town of Escalante. Both our kids had the best time hiking in the deep and constantly twisting and turning slots, and the eerie and haunting experience is captured in the canyons’ names. We had to squeeze our way through in some places that were so tight that we had to hold our backpacks and cameras over our heads as we walked through sideways. When we came to some pools, we had to use our hands and feet to get across, all the while surrounded by spectacular lights, shadows, and colors.
