3 trip Little Wild Horse Canyon / Bell Canyon - San Rafael Swell
Date: 10/19/2013
Great little canyon. We were a little sore from Crack Canyon and in a hurry, but we're glad we took the time. We're young and fast so we did little wild horse in probably 2 hours. It's gorgeous. It gets pretty narrow and to stay dry you end up bracing yourself above the water with both legs. It gets exciting, but not dangerous. When we were there there was a big muddy spot right at the mouth of the canyon, but you can easily avoid it and climb left of it. We quit at the big pot at the end. (You can keep going and loop to Bell Canyon). We didn't get to Bell canyon as we were short on time and ppl said Little Wild Horse is prettier.
3 trip Crack Canyon - San Rafael Swell

A great canyon. Saw 5 or 6 others. Once you get past the second grand narrow area there's a gaping hole where the canyon takes a huge 90 degree turn left. We had 2 water-filled obstacles that were great challenges for us young guys. The others we saw didn't try them. But getting through was worth it. The second high-walled narrow area is the coolest part of the canyon. Word to the wise - don't park at the sign - you can go on the dirt road a good little ways until you come to wood fences. It'd save you 20-40 min.
