Was really itching to hit this amAZing canyon one more time before summer was winding down. We mixed it up by parking at the AB Young TH in the morning and hiking up the trail first. :sweat: It worked much better this way while out legs were fresh and our gear was dry. :D I'd done the middle & bushy western fork of Illusion but this time we mixed it up by dropping on the eastern fork and we rewared with an easy approach and yet another cool mossy rappel. The main canyon was as flipping sweet as always! :y: The swimmers & keepers were cold & full so no keepers issues this time. Just loads of rappels, down climbing, rock hopping, and swimming like usual... :sweat: Hiked the scenic West Fork back to the highway of course and finished the day by hiking the highway a couple miles back to out car in the dark. ;)
