Not quite wide enough! Time to go up and over.
Dragging packs through here was a pain.
Shuttling packs past this section is recommended.
Taking the dreaded low road. Easy and fun in this canyon.
Hiking up the mesa in the dark was easy and enjoyable. Start hiking earlier next time (4:30AM - 5AM).
Shuttling packs past the optional skinny section, then going back through, would be worth the extra time and effort. Do not drag packs through that section.
The Meeks Mesa Exit was easy to navigate in broad daylight, but would be impossible in the dark.
Exiting over the mesa was fast, but possibly not worth the extra wear and tear on the body. Consider trying the other exit next time.
