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. Looks wet and muddy!

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