Bryce Canyon National Park, Peek-a-boo & Spooky Gulches

The first week of May, I went out exploring places in southern Utah with friends.  The first stop was an unplanned visit to Bryce Canyon National Park.  We were actually on our way to the town of Escalante, but beautiful puffy snowflakes were falling as we went over a pass at near 8,000 feet.  We got out to admire the view and throw a few snowballs. Rather than hike the slot canyons of Escalante on a cool and cloudy day, we turned around and went back to hike in the canyons of Bryce.

Peek-a-boo and Spooky Gulches
Peek-a-boo and Spooky Gulches are challenging, claustrophobic, and exciting.  Entering Spooky Gulch from the top, the challenge was finding our way and climbing down a rock jam. It almost turned us back until the mystery unfolded and we found a safe way to climb down. Both these are narrow, but Spooky Gulch is barely wide enough to pass through.  Glad we made it!
