Chesler Park Trail

A joint on the Chesler Park Trail. We encountered a much more adventurous trail of this sort on the side of Big Spring Canyon on our third day - instead of walking on the ground through the joint, we walked on logs that were unevenly wedged into the walls 100 feet above the ground.
