Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon Tour – Some Recent Photos
If you’re looking for a real Instagram worthy location this summer, look no further than Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon in Kanab, Utah. Sometimes known as Red Canyon, Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon is conveniently located within minutes of downtown Kanab, right up the highway. It’s a bit hard to get to unless you have an off-road vehicle such as a 4×4 or ATV because of the sand trails you need to travel; and even if you have a 4×4 or ATV it does help to have a tour guide for your first time. On my first trip to Peek-a-Boo my brother got stuck in his 4×4 because he didn’t “air down” his tires enough and slowed down in a deep sandy spot. If you’re being guided by Kanab Tour Company that isn’t a worry. Their Polaris RZRs are more nimble in the sand than any 4x4s, so getting stuck isn’t an issue. Once you get to Peek-a-Boo here’s what you will behold. And trust me when I say, these photos don’t do it justice. You really have to see it for yourself. Here are some recent photos…
Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon Star Fossils
Toward the end of the canyon, if you look very closely in the rocks, you will find some very cool fossils embedded in rocks. These fossils are what locals call “star rocks” and they are crinoids from the Middle Jurassic period in Southern Utah. Sometimes the fossils are visible to the naked eye, but other times they reveal themselves when you pour water over the stones in which they are embedded. If you are lucky enough to find them, please take nothing more than a photo. Please note, taking them as souvenirs is prohibited.
