Slot Canyon near Horsethief Canyon 716-1

Near Horsethief Canyon

Along the Kokopelli Trail on a hike to an overlook along the Colorado River, this small red sandstone slot canyon presented itself for a brief sidetrip. The twisting and rocky path led aproximately 100 feet before dropping a a few hundred feet to the valley floor where the Colorado River flowed by in the distance.
