Approaching the headwall he saw the feature which gave this hike its name: the entrance to a massive crack in the stone.

Entering the #crevice he saw a band of blue sky above, a rill of water trickling past his feet below.

This place was its own world, of cool water and moss and granite. He watched as a dragonfly flitted past. “Hello!” he shouted, listening to his voice echo off the sheer walls.

“Hello!” a voice answered back. A voice not his own.
