Snapshot: Adventures in Canyoneering
The day started early — up at 4 a.m. and in the canyon by 5:45 a.m. Eight canyoneers headed out for a day of adventure. They wound their way through miles of red swirling sandstone slot canyon, with multiple rappels ranging from 15 feet to the Big Rap, which is more than 350 feet. After many hours and a few mishaps, they emerged at the mouth of the canyon to inflate their kayaks, which were back hauled earlier in the day. They then paddled the remaining four miles down river — against the wind — in the churning river to complete the very long day.
