Twilight Canyoneering

The experience of being immersed in a desert slot canyon changes by the minute.  

Some well kept secrets of the locals are the many ways that we beat both the heat and crowds of the summer travel season.  Higher elevations, shade, and finishing by headlamp are the tricks of the outdoor trade, and this adventure leverages all of those techniques.

Starting after an early dinner, we travel in airconditioned comfort to the head of the canyon, and descend to its shady and cooler confines via several rappels, hiking, scrambling, and possibly wading through pools of water depending on conditions.  At the end of the slot we begin our ascent back to the vehicle, using headlamps when necessary, and eventually begin our drive back as the first stars appear.
