This enthusiastic backcountry hiker pauses briefly in a narrow passage of Red Breaks, giving a sense of scale to the scene. Utah's Red Breaks are found in a sandstone maze called the Escalante Canyons. The mix of narrow slots and passageways are separated by open sandy stretches, cut through some of the nation's wildest landscape. Called a canyoneer's paradise, these tight slot canyons sometimes require a chimneying maneuver to pass through a few difficult necks. Additional major obstacles include 20 foot vertical steps, chokestones and stagnant pools.
