Mosaic Canyon, Death Valley

This is a 2-4 mile hike depending on where you go.  The park information warns that some areas are slippery due to the smooth granite. Unfortunately, I did not get far.

There were some pretty places and he had a good walk. This canyon, like everything in Death Valley, frequently changed as you rounded a corner!

He took a spill in this smooth (and slippery) area but he only scraped his elbow and wrenched his leg slightly (thank goodness). I don’t really like for him to go by himself but there were many other people in the canyon so he would have been okay (others would probably be of more help than I).
