The slot canyons in Antelope Valley are unlike anything I’ve ever seen. They are accessible only by steep ladders and stairwells that lead down into the narrow canyon floor. But oh, the colors, the textures, the patterns; they are spectacular. The pathways twist and turn for a couple of miles until suddenly you’re back outside. The sky is visible in narrow slits far above. I came across this step midway in our travels. It really struck my fancy. Not only is the lettering welded crudely onto the metal step and who knows how long ago it was done? It says simply, ‘Watch Out,” an ominous warning. It doesn’t say “watch your step” or “Be careful” or “take care.” The step leads suddenly around a blind corner so I guess, “watch out!” is appropriate.
