Slot canyons are a peculiarly Southwestern phenomenon, beautiful and other-worldly. For anyone who's not familiar, slot canyons are very narrow, twisty canyons carved into sandstone by the ravages of violent rainfall runoff.

They can grow from just inches in depth and width to grand corridors that amaze and inspire.
