Returned to this fun hike, starting this time from the parking area off of Highway 93 and hiking down to the springs and back. I was amazed when I drove past the day before how many cars were in the parking lot. It must be a very popular hike now, and I imagine that the parking lot and signs have done a lot to ruin the quiet of this slot canyon.

Hike was still nice, though, and because of the narrow winding character of the canyon, we seldom saw the other people on the trail before and behind us. When we got to the hotspring, however, holy wow what a freaking zoo! We elected not to ascend the ladder (there was a very long wait to anyway) and instead went down to the river and ate our lunch in peace.

I was with my friend Michelle, who has done very little hiking with me, and she loved the canyon. It's a great trip for non-hikers, since it offers some amazing scenery, easy walking and a great payoff at the end (either the river or the spring are worth the trip).

Trash is becoming a real problem in this canyon, and I imagine it doesn't flash often enough to keep things clean. I wanted to make up a brochure about packing out toilet paper and hand it to everyone I saw. It just gets SO FREAKING GROSS after a while.
