Horse Thief Canyon... when I was pledging a fraternity at Arizona State University (1967), I and several other pledges were "grabbed" and taken to Horse Thief Basin and dumped in the middle of the night. We had to hike out and hitch a ride back to Tempe!!

Be that as it may, what I'm really posting about is, I wonder if we could talk you into doing a little video on how you carve your foam and what bits you use in your Dremel. The effects you get are really impressive!

Did someone say, "video?"

Heres a new how-to video describing my rock cutting and carving techniques in more depth. Hope this answers some questions about how I get those rock textures in the EPF board. Enjoy!

There's also a new post up on the Thunder Mesa blog today beginning a series on the building of Horse Thief Canyon. Hope you'll check it out: http://thundermesaminingco.blogspot.com/2016/02/building-horse-thief-canyon-part-i.html

Thanks teach! That's a nickname for a teacher and that is what you are.

Great video, well done and a nice choice for a complete understanding of the process. Russ

Dave, not only is your modeling top notch, but so are your videos and your blog! What a treat to actually see how you make your canyon walls. You do make it look so easy. Thanks for taking the time to do that for us. I'm already looking forward to the next installment!

Thanks guys, so glad you liked the video.

Today I was able to get the first coat of flat latex paint on the lower reaches of Horse Thief Canyon. This golden tan color will act as a base for the final coloring and texturing to come.

HOLY er, COW!! Every time I think you can't possibly outdo yourself, you just do it. When I think about where you've come since Part 1, Page 1, I'm absolutely amazed and totally looking forward to every update, video and blog post.

Thanks so much,

Horse Thief Canyon update: painting and ground cover are finished (for now) for the first 16' of the slot canyon's depth. Only 56' more to go!

Looking up the canyon:


The dry, sandy floor of Horse Thief Canyon. Frequent flash floods mean nothing much can take root down there:
