Blacktail Canyon was one of the few Canyons that we explored that had no water in it, dry as a bone, except for at the extreme end where we could proceed no further, there the walls were damp but little else. Here the beauty was in the rocks and the carving done by the wind and water over the years, like those little "pockets" or holes you can se in the second picture which may have been "carved" by a small piece of sand caught in a small imperfection in the cliff face and being driven around and around by the wind till it has "drilled" out a round hole...The last two pictures are myself with my daughter Tal and the whole group who went out for this hike.
