My wife, my daughter, and I hiked from the Temple of Sinawava to the narrows and then entered the narrows until we reached Orderville Canyon. We went about half a mile into Orderville and then returned to the narrows. We continued another half mile up-canyon in the narrows before returning.

We made it one waterfall further up Orderville this year. This didn't add a tremendous amount of distance, but we felt like we had accomplished something nonetheless. We stopped at a waterfall which would have required ascending a right leaning log and then perhaps stepping onto a floating log to gain the ledge above. My daughter started to go to the log, but I told her to return when I saw the water go to neck level.

Also, we hadn't been up the Narrows beyond Orderville in the past - it was nice to see that part of the Narrows past the intersection with Orderville.

It seemed easier this year - I think that the water level was lower. Most of our hiking through water ended up being no higher than crotch level. It got somewhat higher in a few spots last year.

It was a busy canyon on the day we did it, but a lot of fun regardless.
