Lots of open space here, great photo opportunities and very relaxing. Be careful if you want to do any wading if there have been recent rains in the area....flash floods can occur.

This is the trail that hikers use to access the Narrows. It is a nice hike even if the Narrows are not in your plans. We packed a lunch and enjoyed on some large river rocks, while watching hikers enter and exit the canyon. Great...More
