Slippery Slope

The Tower Tunnel Trail sounded easy! It was a short walk out to an overlook to view the Breaks canyon. However, recent heavy rains had coated parts of the trail with mud and washed out a few places. Obviously the trail bed had become a creek bed during the rain!

We did make it to the overlook but I wished I had a walking stick.


  1. That's the way it has been around here, the rain just made every where a treacherous mess at times. You made it though.

  2. Yikes, that last photo looks really dangerous! Glad you made it okay.

  3. Lots of roots sticking up... I am such a klutz I would be on my rear most of the time.
