The plan is to hike to the Inkpots these distances are all one way and the elevation gain this morning is around 1200 feet…so you have not seen these legs for over a week

Although it was not sunny it was warm….I must say the first part of the hike is extremely well laid out with good interpretive signs and the walkway besides the canyon is cool!!!!
