After our big day on Saturday we were happy to have a late morning. We headed up North to Pumpkin Center for lunch at Pumkin Center Bar! Get the Green Chili burrito! The drive there was beautiful in sections and interesting in other sections. Lots of mining history.

After lunch we continued on to Payson and then Christopher Creek.

Chris Creek is a natural water park. When we got there the drop in point was littered with children and their families. Ugh! But soon we left the crowds behind. It was nice getting a late start as we didn't have to share the canyon with any other Canyoneers.

Airkewled did a couple of the ballsy jumps from our previous trip. We did a couple rappels from different anchors as other parties had changed them. I felt more confident since its been almost a half year since my shoulder surgery.

The canyon was cold as before so I was happy to have a wetsuit (note to self - take the 5 mm next time!).

Everyone had a blast! We even managed to get on the proper route out!

After our short adventure, most of us headed up to West Clear Creek where I made venison and green chili pizza!
