San Rafael Swell Day 1 March 2010

We were just recently here, but we took another trip to the swell this time to follow Bill around for his annual Birthday camping trip. We arrived a little later than we would have liked to on Friday, but we had just enough time to set up camp and do a quick little hike to Farnsworth Canyon.

Farnsworth is cool because it's short and sweet and you see some awesome little slots. Perfect for taking kids and since it's not along a heavily used BLM road, you'll likely not encounter another person. We're definitely coming back to this place.

Water stopped most of us, but I continued on over the water and through the back of the slot
