Did LBJ down main and all the way out horseshoe. Beyond beautiful, and we didn't see a single person the entire trip save for passing a vehicle on the drive back to the highway. Recent rains meant lots of water in the lower slots. The deepest pool went at least waist deep, but all could be navigated carefully to no more than knee deep. Clay at the bottom of the pools made each downclimb slower as our footing became slicker. Hike out was nice at least, as the washes were damp enough to have packed sand, and we passed by several families of curious burros. Overall an unforgettable outing.

Went down Little Blue John which was beautiful and then ascended the Main Fork which was hard work (but fun!). Glad the two groups we met descending the main fork were after we'd finished ascending! Not much room for passing! Also amused that they both asked us if they were in Main Fork. One 20m pool in the Main Fork about thigh deep. Doesn't look like it is going anywhere soon.

Full Blue John via Little Blue John was amazing. A long day, but the canyons were spectacular.

Main fork - west fork with bike shuttle (5 hrs)

We went down little blue john and continued down the wash to the Ralston chockstone and reversed up canyon to the main fork where we up climbed the canyon and returned to the car in about 8 hours. The middle fork was completely dry and there was a few shallow pools past the Ralston chockstone.
