A very pretty canyon with contrasting green, red and white colors. A little extra adventure is thrown in by bushwacking your way into the canyon. The climb up and out of the canyon to the rim at the end of the trail is worth the effort; very impressive dome rock vistas. The canyon floor is very soft and sandy and made the hike difficult and feel twice as long as it is. And no real narrows in this canyon.
