This was my first canyoneering experience. I was a freshmen in college and a school teacher from CEU took a group of us through this canyon. Needless to say, it was the beginning of a LOVE for hiking canyons!

I was born here! Well, not really, but this is gotta be one of my most favorite places in the whole world! I grew up in Castle Dale, Ut and this is only a few miles from my house. My love for the out-of-doors is largely due to this area of the world!
