In Escalante and the Grand Staircase, you will find yourself in awe as you explore and make your way through natures rock carvings, also known as Slot Canyons. These canyons are made by rare, but heavy rainfalls and high mountain snow melt. The silt rock does not absorb the water well, so gravity pulls the water down and as it runs through the canyons it carves them into twisted, narrow and stunning works of art. These masterpieces are something that everyone should experience and should be appreciated by all!
