Alright this was a very impromptu trip with a couple friends who have never even been to Camp Verde.
I asked if they wanted to see something cool? They said yes and we were off.

Friday night it rained most of the night and into the morning giving us a late start and making for a lot of mud.
We came in on the forest road and started making our way in. Managed to get stuck in the mud twice and pull two trees out of the road that had falling during the night. Was really happy I brought my big chain.

Finally made it back into the top of the canyon and started making our way down.
the mud continued and made for the slickest decent I have ever done. We all fell a couple times and were dirty.

By the time we got down to the canyon floor and to the creek everyone was pumped and ready to go.
I had an impromptu safety meeting about swimming with a backpack and clothes on and everyone agreed they were good to go........ That ended up being short lived.

Apparently men while in the company of other men have a hard time saying "hey, I'm not the best swimmer" by the time we made it to the longer swims one of the party was sucking wind and struggling to stay above water.
I ended up swimming back and taking his backpack and shoes from him so he could swim back.
Finally swallowing his pride he admitted he was not a great swimmer and we turned around to head back as a group falling short of the gardens.

We proceeded to hike back up canyon and climb our way out.
I want to do this trip again and make it in to the gardens, but all in all everyone was safe and now I think I opened the eyes of some new people to the beauty that this state makes you work for if you want to experience it.

This was my first time doing a canyon that required gear. I loved it.
So thankful for friends with skills that made the trip safe and a blast.

I only wish the trip was longer.

The climb out is fairly quick but it makes you work.
cant wait for the next one.
