After Drooling over Photos of this place for the last 2 or so years, I finally got there to see it and do it... :D And the Company made it all the more fun! Yep, the ever so patient Canyon Crew invited me to go with and the good times commenced once again.... :y: And as a Bonus, Scott's wife Tanya came along on this one, so the Laughs were multiplied even more.... :D

It was everything I knew it would be...Beautiful Water and Canyon, Gorgeous Rocks and Formations, Waterfalls, Cascades, and Deep, Clear Pools for Swimming.... :DANCE: I took a hit from the Macho guys when I elected to wear a Shortie, but hey, I'd rather burn Calories enjoying, rather than shivering, eh Ken??? :sweat: I wasn't the only one and it was a good choice for everyone that elected to be a "Wimp".... :GB:

The Canyon (Jug) was shorter than I imagined, but still, at least in my mind, worth the Hike in and out...I'll pay to play, even if just for a little while...I was surprised that we didn't run into more people on a Saturday, but the Weather Forecasted a 30% Chance of Thunderstorms, so maybe that kept most of the Crowd away...There were a couple of Parties in front of us that we only saw briefly and then a big Party behind us that caught up to us at the Rappel...Everyone elected to Rappel the last Waterfall except Ken, who decided this time that he was going to jump it... :o :sweat:

First time Rappelling down a Waterfall, although the Water Flow was nothing huge or too concerning...However, the Footing turned out to be a little Tricky, as there is a Crevice/Crack that runs the length of it, under the Water where you couldn't see it and it's a potential problem for getting your Foot stuck or losing a Shoe...The only way to avoid it would be to straddle the Whole Waterfall and that wasn't very practical or efficient, so you just tried to watch and feel your Feet...The First guy to Rappel from the Party behind us lost his Shoe and finished without it, although he was able to retrieve it. It was fun! And then the rest of us watched Ken jump it.... :sweat:

A couple of more Swims and we were out and on the Exit Trail...It is a huffer getting out, but the Weather was still nice with a little Thunder in the Distance, so it wasn't a hot trek out...Could not have asked for better Weather for the Hiking, although I'm sure Ken and Mike would have enjoyed a little more Sun here and there.... :lol:

It was a fun Trip and I'm really glad to finally see it! I'm sure I'll be back.... :y:

The Guys showed me a Canyon that I had not seen, so I took advantage of the fact that I was driving, and showed them a Pizza Joint that they had never tried...It just wouldn't be right to end this Fun Day without Big Daddy's, would it??? :D

I had trouble with Water collecting on the Lens of the Camera and also with it Fogging Up, but I salvaged a few decent Shots...There are also a couple of Videos for your Viewing Pleasure....

Three Days after we went through, there was an Injury and a Rescue at that Rappel...Am glad to hear that he will be ok... You can read about it here... viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8260&start=0
