Hike Down Willis Creek

I had done this hike 2 years ago with the WINs and liked it so much that I persuaded Barbara and Ron to try it out.

The small creek flows down through a beautiful slot canyon. It's hard to believe that the canyon was formed by this small amount of water, but I guess sometimes there's a lot more.

The hike involves a lot of jumping - back and forth across the stream.

It sometimes opens up a little -

Then goes back to the narrow slots, getting taller the farther down you go.

Just beautiful!

We shared the trail with some mules and horses -

Causing us to jump even more!

In one of the open areas there was a nice arch. If you look closely, you can see that someone climbed up there.

We then turned around, and I took a lot of the same pictures going back.

It was a great day!


  1. Your trips are always so inspiring. You make us want to sell our home and head out.

  2. That's a great hike - I'd love doing it, but wonder about people who are claustrophobic. Wonder if that would be an issue. I guess if you can go through an MRI you'd be okay there, at least the sky is visible. Sure hope people downstream don't drink the water! :)

  3. It WAS a great day! Thanks for taking us.

  4. That was a great day! Isn't amazing how differently things look going back on the same trail? At least it always seems to (to me). Great pics as always. Glad you guys could jump! :))


I love comments!
