Ladder Canyon Epic Hike

150 150 Art Design PLAY

Art + Design students and faculty at La Sierra University, spend the Sabbath hiking in the Mecca Hills, exploring Ladder Canyon and Painted Canyon.

While I’ve only been on a few A + D family trips, our excursion to Ladder Canyon was inexplicably my favorite. Going to Mecca was a whole new experience for me; I was star-struck by the sheer enormity of the slot canyons surrounding me. The entire day I was filled with such wonder and peace, and I can’t wait to adventure through more beautiful places like this in the future.
