Entrajo Canyon

Technical Canyoneering

          Entrajo Canyon (en-TRAH-ho) is named after the sandstone layers in which it is found. The upper canyon section is Entrada sandstone and the lower canyon section is Navajo sandstone. You pass through a very distinct boundary between these two layers while traveling down the canyon. This short but fun slot canyon packs a big punch into a small package.
