I've been to the canyon before. Always...we headed up to the ridge top. This time, it's a winter trip and a decision to stay low and just wander along the creek.

I'm suprised by how much color and how beautiful this area is in winter. Stunning.

Lots of ice around though...microspike would come in handy.
