Re: Parunuweap Canyon - NRA boundaries
- Interesting. I stopped at the back country desk today, and asked about the NRA areas. The ranger said that most NRA areas are mesa tops that are inaccessible anyway. The exceptions were Parunaweap and Goose Creek canyons. In other words, they are places that you really can't get to anyway

- Thank you. Check out my photo album here titled "Parunuweap Overlook" for some more photos.
I'm going to stitch together a wide-view still panorama of the canyon from the overlook. I'll let y'all know when I post it.
What kills me is that I didn't stop and look at my NatGeo map while I was there. If I had, I would have realized that I might have been able to view Labyrinth Falls from above. I was only about a quarter-mile west of them. Oh well, maybe next year!
