Canyoneering in Utah, September 2013

In September 2013, five friends (Brian, Patrick and Teresa, and Marc and Julia) took a trip to Utah to go Canyoneering. Great times were had by all and yes, mud was involved. 

Canyoneering (\kan-yə-ˈnir-iŋ\): the sport of exploring canyons by climbing, rappelling, swimming, scrambling, flailing, and rafting.  We did everything except raft.

Disclaimer: Always check the weather before canyoneering. These canyons were carved by rushing water from flash floods and you do NOT want to be in one when it rains. Canyoneering is a dangerous sport. Please do not attempt canyoneering without the proper equiptment and experience, and we recommend you never canyoneer alone (Refer to the movie “127 hours” as to why you should never canyoneer alone…).
