Things I missed the first and second time through the canyon.

|The Hostage Panel - Next to road at road level - About 9.4 Miles|
|About 10.4 Miles on the left side of Balanced Rock|
I tried to look for the owl panel in Current Canyon, but I got halfway there (.31 Miles) and found a big boulder in the way. Since I had my dog with me and wouldn't be able to lift him over it, I turned around. I'll have to try it another day. This site is referenced in Chuck Zehnder's "Guide to Nine Mile Canyon."
|This one made me go "hhhhhmmmm...."|
