After driving through these formations, we took a fairly steep descent down into a beautiful valley, with a river in the bottom, and the rock formations towering overhead as much as 2000 feet above.
We took a strenuous hike, climbing up 1000 feet.
The trail continued, but it looked like this, with 1000 foot drops on both sides. One of us continued up a little farther, but came back when the chain stopped and it was tilted rock with no chain and a drop.

|Even though the signs said "Do Not Feed", the chipmonks were TOO tame - that's my toe at the bottom of the pic.|
