The hike to "Slab Rift" has everything, but most of all it has some great scrambling! We travel along the base of Calico Hills until we find our desired ramp. We'll pass "Heart Rock" and travel through the "Tunnel of Love" as we climb.
The natural formation of cracked boulders and sandstone slabs would make for the perfect home during an undead uprising. There is an attic, a beautiful living space, room for a hidden tent village and best of all a natural bench perfect for enjoying the sunrise over Calico Basin.
This hike is all scrambling and you will be required to crawl a few feet through the small opening in the picture above. As usual I will be there to assist as needed. Check out the description on BirdandHike.com.
Email me through the site, or comment here with any questions. The day of the hike I can be reached on my cell[masked]-0898.
