  •  Hiked Paria Canyon with friends in the early 90s (3+ / 0-)

    Remember going down a fixed rope at one point, and swimming using our packs wrapped in big plastic bags as floats.

    •  that rule still applies. . . (4+ / 0-)

      rope assist and plastic bags for floats and such. It be quite a challenge hiking thru there, at times, the same with Buckskin and Coyote gulches. But those are my favored and sacred trinity of the larger slots. Thanks for posting your comment Bronx59. It helps to hear such from other DKos community members. . .because I know there are many others out there who have similar experience compared to my own, and likely far more experience, mileage wise, slot-canyon number-wise.

          boy...does that bring back memories...including my stupidity for releasing my leg stance and a quick drop downward. Ouch! Then a bit of hobbling for a day or two. Thanks for the memories, Bronx59, which are nonetheless pleasant for me, because Buckskin Gulch. . .my oh my oh my. . .like a stroll through Elysium on Earth!
