This canyon, located near Tortilla Flat, was recently pioneered and named Hose Canyon due to the massive amounts of garden hose in it. No idea how all of the garden hose got into this canyon. It wasn't even all that rotted. Perhaps someone was attempting to expedite the shaping of the canyon?? Ho Ho!

We hauled out as much as we could gather and carry, maybe 100 feet. We were the second group (I believe)to remove some of the hose, there is more left. I suppose we can amend the canyon's name to something more appropriate once all the garden hose is successfully removed....Chicken Wire Canyon might be a good second choice!

Tough exit to navigate in the dark! Brian totally rocked it :)

Merry Christmas to all of my HAZ friends :GB:
