::wandering:: canyoneering+

i survived. here's some proof.
pic 1: getting ready to start swimming
pic 2: at the top before our last rappel (100 ft free rappel)
pic 3: ME coming down the last rappel
pic 4: after i knew i'd survived.
so it really was a fun day. as scared as i was, tresspasser and ::husband:: are great to go with for your first time.
other bonuses: i didn't carry any ropes, etc. i'm sure that helped greatly with my swimming capabilities
{{translation: not drowning capabilities. i really have no swimming capabilities}}.
also: we were behind a pretty slow group of six, so i had plenty of time to watch each of
them doing it without freaking out. would i go again? yeah, i think so.
when we got out of the canyon, we were famished so we headed to the post-hike standby
Zion Pizza & Noodle. and after dinner, we headed out to the cabin in Kanab for the rest of our weekend!

It's gotta be one of the ultimate demonstrations of love and trust to hang from ropes assembled by your husband. Good job! --WC

yes, VERY happy to be alive. we started at that parking lot just on the other side of the big tunnel. and then we ended at one of the switchbacks on the way up.
