The article features the Black Hole in Utah which is a narrow gorge in the middle of White Canyon, which runs for about 50 miles from the foot of the Abajo Mountains, near Blandning, to Geln Canyon. It mentions that the canyon was considered dangerous after a flash flood filled the canyon's narrowest sections with debris and made safe passage impossible but Michael Kelsey, author on canyons, believes that it is not. Also included are the guidebooks published by Kelsey.
