You got punk'd. I'm with Mike on this- consult with more locals before attempting solo dirt rides in the future. Had you been alone and a bit less fortunate, you might have left in a chopper. Nice pics though. Now you can go back and know what to expect.
Box canyon (and surroundings) is a blast.

Beer is a god damn miracle, and don't you forget it!"
