So sweet to finally do one of the BIG canyons of Zion!
We elected to do the full overnight canyon via the West Rim TH, so most of our hike was downhill thankfully. Loads and loads and loads of rappels like 30+, not to mention all the down climbing, and plowing thru thick log stew.
The water levels were full so thankfully we were able to swim right over the nasty keepers. Save those for another trip.
This is by far the most amazingly beaUTiful & challenging canyons I've yet to do...
Unfortunately things took a turn for the worst when this trip turned seriously EPIC requiring two SAR rescues.
Thankfully only busted right ankles were sustained when things could have been much, much worse!
