Protected Habitat - Horseshoe Mesa mines - Grand Canyon

Since the last time I was on Horseshoe Mesa a few winters ago, the National Park Service has rerouted the trail and created this Protected Habitat for bats. Bats are a critical part of the Canyon ecosystem and are very misunderstood. This goes into the Last Chance Mine which is sealed off now.
