I generally prefer to go into places where no one else wants to go; I find that in contemplating the natural world my pleasure is greater if there are not too many others contemplating it with me, at the same time. // Access to this beautiful canyon requires 5 miles of stand up paddle or kayak, scrambling through some gnarly (and very stinky) mud, and a two mile hike in some slippery conditions, not to mention lots of rock scrambling. Was all that worth it?! Oh yes. And it was so peaceful to have all to myself.
