1st trip
Not sure how this defaults to a canyoneering trip, but whatevs. (I mean, I guess it does go through a canyon :-k )

Despite the forecast we headed out for a day in the desert, with plenty of appropriate gear. The rain began shortly after we started, and lasted for a couple of hours before slowing. We managed to complete the hike just before the skies opened up again. Saw two other hikers who also have the same immunity to rain that apparently causes immediate death in the rest of the population. Basically a fantastic day out there!!

Best part of the day ... 9Ls Jeep drove on a dirt road. While it was raining!!! : rambo : :o
