Just got back from a 3 day adventure exploring the slots. Daily late afternoon showers this past week have started a consistent water flow through the canyon. Rock-hopped across many flooded sections and got plenty soaked and muddy through some others!

Also went to the ghost town of Pahreah on the middle Paria River. Saw the refurbished remains of a movie set used for about a dozen different westerns - one of which is a particular favorite of mine - The Outlaw Josey Wales with Clint Eastwood.

Will need to check my DVD out to be sure, but I think the restored saloon is where Clint uttered one of the most striking lines in cinematic history; "Dying ain't no way to make a living".

Also found 2 first rate hiking sticks abandoned near the ruins.
