 Twin Falls Activities: Hike Black Magic Canyon

So often, we think we need to travel to far off places to experience the world and fail to appreciate the beauty in our own back yard. Thus, it is with Black Magic Canyon. 

An hour north of Twin Falls, Idaho, this little canyon boasts the alien features you might expect to pay good money to visit in popular destination spots in Southern Utah and Northern Arizona. But like many underrated things in Idaho, this little slot canyon is free and absolutely worth every second.

Unlike its southern cousins, Black Magic Canyon trades out ochre and rust sandstone for solid black basalt. The Big Wood River has carved alien twists and turns and hollowed out boulders that look more like dinosaur vertebrae than actual rocks.

To find it, take US 93 N and Highway 75 until you reach Cottonwoods Rd/W Magic Rd in Lincoln County. You’ll see a small parking lot and informational sign just to the right. The trail veers to the left and slopes into the riverbed. Follow the riverbed until you begin your descent into Black Magic Canyon.

This hike is rated moderate, but if you want to kick it up a notch, hike under the Highway 75 bridge to find a second slot canyon. This one is a little harder to navigate and even longer than the first. Know how to rappel? Because there’s a third slot canyon a few hundred yards past the second one, for those with the skills and daring. Or you could make a weekend out of the trip and camp at Magic Valley Reservoir (great fishing and lots of boondocking spots!).

Plan your trip in the early spring, fall, or winter, as this canyon is filled with irrigation water in the summer. To check, call Big Wood Canal Company at 208-886-2331. Make sure you wear sturdy shoes and bring plenty of water and snacks.

Etiquette for Contacting an Author

1. Do not email an author your critique of their work.

Authorship is a lonely road through a lot of self-doubt and gatekeepers. Authors need encouragement and support, not random critiques on an already published book (changes cannot be made at this point). Instead, post your reviews on retailers or Goodreads.

2. Do not ask an author for free books.

You wouldn't like it if someone asked you for free services. Don't do it to us. People have a sense that authors make a lot of money. "54% of “traditionally-published” authors (and nearly 80% of self-published authors) earn less than $1,000 a year." I do offer a couple free novellas for people to try. Having said that, 

3. Do not contact an author for technical assistance or to complain about the formatting of a book.

If there's a problem with your formatting, try updating your app or contact the retailer. I don't work for said retailers, so I don't know how their platforms work on their end. If there are any formatting problems, chances are it has to do with your reader or a faulty download. So don't email me in a huff.

4. Don't ask me to write your book.

Unless you want to pay me a lot of money.

5. Do email us positive reviews and heart emojis. Even if we don't have time to respond, we do see them, and they do make our days. 

6. Do send invitations for events in which you pay the author to come. Or, if it's an online bookclub, ask that all the members buy a copy of the book to compensate the author. 

That's it! Anyone think of any other legit/welcome reasons to email an author?
