In 2014 we loved our Wire Pass - Buckskin - Paria - Lee's Ferry trip. We couldn't resist the opportunity to head back into Buckskin on this trip. We ended up coming from Upper Buckskin and found that to be very beautiful. It was in the afternoon of our final day, and the late day sunlight and shadows were magical. It was hot with temps in the 80s, but the shade of the slot cooled us off. Later as we walked back, we had Upper Buckskin to ourselves, and it felt so peaceful and serene. (It helped that we hadn't paid attention to world news in awhile...) Over 3 days, it was amazing to have seen so many different rock formations so close to each other. The power of water, wind, sand, and millions of years is truly remarkable.
