What's that you say? You're pretty sure slots are illegal in Utah? Well, not the kind I like! In fact, they thrive there, and in September I had some fun playing them. Well, okay, playing *in* them. Here's a bit of a photo essay from the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, some of the most amazing landscape on earth (which, not to get too political, is under grave threat from the people currently in charge in DC).

|Approach to Coyote Wash|
Now for some fun with slots!
|On the approach to Zebra Gulch|
|The author in Zebra Gulch. Photo thanks to Zebra Guy, the nice hiker who coached me through and shared the photos!|
Zebra Gulch turned very wet and challenging. This final photo is about the point where I turned around and stowed my camera on dry ground!
|My hiking companion chest-deep. The water got more like neck-deep on us before we got through!|
So there you have it--My idea of slots worth playing with--and protecting.
Now, back to enjoying the wilds of Maine :)
