By studying maps and Google Earth, Steve thought he knew where the Slide was, and since the cowboys could get there, he figured we could, too.
Easier said than done! This is very rough country with lots of sandstone (also known as slickrock, for good reason). We found a "trail" of sorts, which seemed to lead in the right direction. After due consideration and a good look at the steep descent, Steve proceeded on foot while I stayed behind with the horses. Maybe the cowboys took horses and cows down to the Slide that way, maybe not. But this "trail" was definitely risky for equines. We weren't taking any chances.
With Daisy refreshed, Steve kept going. Anyone who knows him, knows he wasn't going to give up easily. He found a way down the slickrock, and located the Sand Slide below that, leading directly into Horseshoe Canyon.
Conclusion? We had more exploring to do!
