December 14, 2006 - Mosaic Canyon

Mosaic Canyon is one we missed hiking our last trip, though Dave and Barb did so.  This was our chance.  It is a 2.4 mile dirt road up hill to the parking lot:

Lots of marble and many narrow spots as we hiked up into the canyon:

Coming back down we could admire the geology:

There were even some green plants:
