Yellow Brick Road is one of the most beautiful areas around. The area is not the place for tight, deep, dark slots, but rather open areas, big views, and an incredible bridge. Unique features abound on this one. Yellow Brick Road is more of a hike with a few amazing rappels. If you are looking for a technically challenging slot fest, look elsewhere. Be sure to bring your camera.

Penny Martens and I first checked out this area back one very dreary winter day in the early 2000s. Having spotted Tik-Tok Bridge, we came back the next day and descended the canyon. It is a fantastic area I have visited quite a few times over the years.
