Running into a herd of desert bighorn at Valley of Fire just after sunrise delayed us a bit in getting to the trailhead for Kanarra on this day (because if you get the chance to photograph those elusive critters, you take it). Our late start meant we had to do the hike in 100-degree weather (something I do NOT recommend). We were prepared, but the first couple of miles were still absolutely brutal--and then completely worth it when we reached the narrows section of the canyon. Beautiful place, and I can't believe it isn't photographed more.
