Camped at Marble canyon on the way home from Utah. Did the South fork of Badger since I hadn't done it before. Really muddy and a challenge to keep feet dry.

Got a 5am start at the grotto. The approach was fun and scenic. Had a short route finding challenge at the beginning but it didn't take us too long to figure out. I went with my 4/3 wetsuit over my 2 mil shorty( along with a rain shell and a PFD) and I was roasting in the first narrows section. The second section got colder luckily but I was comfortable the whole time. We had 4 potholes low enough to hook out of. The one after big bertha had blown out holes and was tricky. I got in the pothole with Shelly and basically pushed her out of the water to help her get purchase with the holes. Luckily I was warm so didn't mind being in the water that long.

Amazing canyon.

Had plannned on doing Imlay this day, but it didn't work out. When I went to the permit office the day before to pick up my Imlay permit there was lightning so they closed the permit window. Then there was a flash flood warning so they have policy to not issue any more permits that day. So we had to go the next day at 8am to pick up a permit. That's too late to start for Imlay so we decided on Telephone instead. I really enjoyed it. Lots of rappels and fun downclimbs.

Since we were camped in the area, decided to do Boundary after Kolob. Really fun canyon and dry. Brought wetsuit but wasn't needed.

We were pretty nervous about this due to the cold water. The water district release report said 'up to 3 cfs'. We were hoping for less. Got to the drop in and there was no flow. Was almost too hot at first with a dry suit but it was definitely nice once we hit the swims. Got thru the inital technical part pretty quickly and from there it was a long slog to the MIA exit. MIA wasn't as bad as expected.

Did this from the top since weeping rock is closed. Really nice narrows and gave me a chance to test out my drysuit.

Perfect recovery day activity after garden the day before. Really fun scramble. A couple of tricky upclimbs but nothing too bad. We brought a short rope just in case but didn't need it.

Wanted to get a good workout in and this fit the bill. Great time as always. The flow seemed a bit higher than before. No wetsuits and was fine without.

Ooof. I had a bad idea to skip the car shuttle and hike back up the Palisades trail. We started at the TH at 5:30. Made good time and hit the drop in about 7:30. There was a good amount of flow. I was a bit nervous that there would be too much flow but didn't look too bad. First rap wasn't bad - could easily avoid the worst of the flow. Contined down. Super fun with all the flow, but actually a bit chilly in a 3/2 wetsuit. I was very surprised at the big huge pothole pool. Shelley went first to go rig the next drop and it's always been a swimmer, even in dry years. I saw her standing in less then knee deep water. That entire huge pothole had filled in with sand/debris. Anyway, we made it down in good time and were through the technical portion at 11. Took a nice long break and started the rock hop down to Sabino. Took the east fk trail to Palisades. Shelly made a comment - "are you sure you want to do this, we could bail out to prison camp". I thought, I'm used to the heat, how bad could it be? Started up Palisades. It was VERY overgrown. Lots of Velcro and viney stuff to trip you so the going was not easy. It was also in full sun. I started to really slow down. We finally got to where we left the trail in the morning and found shade to take a break. I felt like I really wasn't able to cool down even in the shade. We noticed that nothing was drying(we had soaked ourselves in Sabino before getting on the Palisades trail)...so it was more humid than I expected. I still felt ok so we pushed on...slowly. I was finding that I had to go very slow or I'd get a bit nauseaus, or my head would pound(I was definitely making sure I was hydrated and had electrolytes). The trail leveled off and we had shade for a bit and I started to feel much better. Stopped right before mud spring to fill up on water - I had drank 4+ liters already. After that it got steeper and I started hitting the wall. about .5 miles after mud spring we stopped in the shade for a break and I was feeling pretty awful...super tired, nauseaous and a headache. Shelly took the rope I was carrying at that point(she now had 2x200 footers). I slowly trudged on. The last bit seemed like it took forever. Finally about 10-20 min before we hit the car the sun was going down and we started to get a breeze... by the time we got to the car I felt better. After changing getting ready for the drive down I felt almost good as new again.

In the area for caving so we decided to knock this off. Decent hike, but hot.
