|Family pic in one of the coolest slots around — Zebra Slot Canyon in Escalante, UT|

When we got to the wash (after about 2 miles give or take…) you head to the left and look for the cairns across the creek bed. You follow these another quarter mile or so until the mouth of the slot canyon. We ran into some other hikers who were sure they found the wrong canyon because this one “had waist deep water”. Yup, that’s typical. So prepare to get pretty cold and wet.
You have to wade through the icy water for about .2 miles. It varies from ankle deep to waist deep but it is worth it. There was a fair share of screaming 🙂 (bad mom right here…) but we did manage to hoist JJ up on Steve’s shoulders and I carried Harry through the worst of it.
Once in the actual Zebra slot, the awesomeness unfolds before your eyes — swirly purple walls on both sides and just enough room to feel like you can dart in and out of the magnificent folds. It’s really such a mind-boggling place.
