Pioche, Slot Canyons, and Steve’s Birthday

We always have a great time when we are with Deb and Steve and this visit was no exception. Since they love old mining towns we took a trip to Pioche one evening and explored the old mining equipment (all over the town), a wild west era cemetery, and ate at a local bar. The cemetery in particular was very interesting because they had an entire row of graves who were people killed in gunfights or were shot for their claims. As romanticized as the west is in many movies, you forget how brutal it could be and this cemetery really showed that.

These mining carts still hanging all over town are really cool and in surprisingly good shape for their age. See the bullet holes!

The absolute coolest thing we did though was explore the slot canyons in Cathedral Gorge. We all love slot canyons and although these are relatively shallow there were tons of them. We spent a couple of hours exploring them and got the most beautiful pictures. The coolest thing is you really can’t tell from far away they are all there, so we walked along the rock border and explored most of them.

Love love this picture

The best time we had though was celebrating Steve’s birthday with him. Over the years we have been able to celebrate birthdays with most of our friends, but Steve is usually with family on his. Over two nights we have a couple of great meals, a campfire, and some huckleberry margaritas…yum. So very glad we got to spend time with them and we all promised it would not be three years before we met again.
