Little Wild Horse Canyon

The schmig stepped up and organized a trip out to Goblin Valley and Little Wild Horse Canyon. I had not heard of either, but I am sure glad we went. Little Wild Horse is an easily accessible slot canyon cut through the San Rafael swell in south central Utah. There is a nice loop hike the exits out Bell Canyon, the next one over. It had rained heavily a few days earlier so there were some stretches of standing water in the narrows. There are also a dozen or so obstacles to get over/down along the way. We took it pretty easy and the hike lasted ~5hrs. The October weather was perfect, and earlier in the season, this would have been a scorcher.

Rufus, Ollie, and a Schmig!

The puppy *LOVED* it and spent the days jumping in mud puddles and running back and forth "exploring" the canyon. He's gonna make a good trail dog for sure.

The Narrows.

More crazy rock features.

We ran in to our neighbor, Ben, half way through the hike.
