The Peek-A-Boo Canyon is a great destination - photographically, but also from the challenge. There is often a small lake at the entrance that you have to wade through, and then also inside there are pots of water that are up to 3 ft deep. The entrance is a real hurdle - almost 15 ft vertically high, but there are steps cut into the sandstone. If you don't like walking through the water or are put off by the entrance, hike 500 ft to the back entrance: left of the main entrance along the rock. My aluminum ladder served us very well here as well. It is assembled from three pieces of 3 ft each and weighs 4 pounds. We deposited it at the Circle-D Motel in Escalante - anyone can borrow it there for free.
I had my porter with me . . the ladder served us well!
Finally, the surprise - a tarantula!
