Then I tried a few times, but there was NO way! I just couldn't get any purchase, there were no hand or foot holds and the sand made it very slippery. Steve was already up at the top, seeing what was on the other side. It was killing me. I wanted to be there. I wanted to see too!
He said to me, "You have to commit".
He was right. I was letting my fear get the best of me. I tried again and this time made it to the point where I could brace myself on the narrow walls of the crevice.
As I reached the top, perched precariously on a very narrow piece of ground, I saw the other side.
Our next adventure, the next day, was one of many slot canyons in the area. You can see the beginning of it here as I pose with my brother after we climbed back out.
Here is the entrance. Deep, dark and 'wow, really? How am I going to get down there?"
I love slot canyons, I'm absolutely fascinated by them. I had to get down there! I took a deep breath and went for it. It wasn't elegant, but I did it.
