This Ain’t No Ordinary Gulch!

Buckskin Gulch along the Arizona/Utah border is the longest slot canyon in the United States. I’ve never completed the whole thing but just a few miles into this abyss is enough to gather some good images. I dragged some friends along who made for some pretty good models(No Royalties Due) and for a good sense of scale. It’s about 13 miles and ends at the Paria River which together make a great backpacking trip.

  1. Thirteen miles seems like a long hike, you must be well-conditioned! Beautiful shots of this amazing place. If this was formed by water, does water still flow here, as in flash floods?
