sorry it's taken forever to continue with the hike posts...
My sister and I did this hike over a month ago. When we got to the trail head and I pulled my camera out I realized I had forgotten my memory card. My camera doesn't take pictures unless you have a memory card. sad. i cried. not really...we hiked anyway. So this trail is very deceiving...online it says that from beginning to end there is only a 100 foot difference...they forgot the mention of the 700 foot climb and descension inbetween.
The story has it that James Slater and Marinus Johansen were up the Canyon hunting many years ago. One of the mules became unruly so Johansen hit the mule over the head with his gun barrel. He cracked the mule's skull, thus, we have Skull Crack Canyon.
I finally had a chance to go back up to Causey Reservoir and I decided to take some pictures of the area.
