4 Watagans creeks – 0 canyons

WATAGAN NP – 4 June 2020
As some of you may recall, I’ve been searching for some elusive canyons in the Watagans alluded to by the (late) legendary Dug Floyd in a Facebook post many years ago.  This was to be my fourth foray into the wilderness, and I almost didn’t make it! Continue reading
