We met a family who had just finished the hike, and they gave us some pointers on how far and which way to go. I told them I'd put their picture in my blog--I wish I knew their names. (NOTE: if you would like to be featured in my blog, please contact me during a hike. No expenses will be paid for the participants.)
"Kasha-Katuwe" means "white cliffs" in the Pueblo language. The cliffs layers are delicate colors, pastel stripes on wallpaper in a trendy decorating scheme. I chose the peach palette.
Big gray clouds were moving in around us--unless you're more than 1/2 mountain goat, a slot canyon is not a good place to be if it rains.
The cliffs and tent rocks were formed by volcanic eruptions a long, long (long!) time ago. They call them "hoodoos", but aren't like the ones we saw in Bryce Canyon. They remind me more of pale versions of the toadstools we saw in Utah. Some even have capstones.
