Peekaboo Canyon

Peekaboo Canyon is a slot canyon about ten miles from Kanab, Utah. The canyon was maybe 40 feet deep and narrow in some places allowing for single file. Some areas widened to allow for two or three people to pass one another. The colors were beautiful. Here are a few images.

We took ATVs through desert to the canyon site.

The entrance.

These are “Moqui” (ancient peoples) steps who carved these, most likely, to store and access foodstuffs to keep them both cool and protected from critters. While it was close to 100 degrees outside, the temperature in the canyon was comfortably cool. The canyon floor is now maybe four feet lower from around an estimated thousand years ago when these were carved.
