It was a cold overcast windy day with a snow on the way.  It was getting late and the the forecast was for snow late that afternoon.  The Canyon opening is a short walk from the parking lot.  The Canyon has a few  twists and turns, high walls and narrow base.  There has been a storm witih high winds the nigh before. The floor was littered with fallen vegetation and what appeared newlly fallen large rocks -glad that I was not there durring the storm. 

Saw no one while there.  Got a little creepy - chould hear the wind blowing as well as a group of blackbirds calling from high up at the canyon's opening that I could hear echoing throughout the canyon.  It has a very surreal feeling.  Thinking back on it - wow what a trip!
