"Do one thing every day that scares you." - Eleanor Roosevelt
|subterranean water-filled wonderland|
|Just finished the last rappel and still can't believe the beauty I just saw!|
While up in Salt Lake to wish our friends CONGRATS on their wedding, we ran into our friend, Nick, who lives in Kanab (and is maybe the most extreme adventurer I know). PERFECT! (Nick also owns a tour company in Kanab called Seldom Seen Adventures. If you ever come to Kanab and want to explore really remote, off-the map canyons and sites, call him up!)
We asked Nick if he'd tag along with us to Zion and he was game. YES! Now I had a pro along so my fears had subsided a whole lot. :)
|Here's Nick actin' like ain't no thing|
At the trailhead (which is right next to the east entrance of the tunnel by the canyon overlook trail) we suited up and started down the trail. There was a large group ahead of us and so we were prepared to wait a pretty long time to get down the first rap. It was so unbelievably beautiful that I don't think anyone minded the wait.
|Ready to go|
|First rappel. Not so bad :)|
|Steve makin' it look easy|
Maybe my favorite part was navigating the next few narrow, spooky and dimly lit passageways. These hallways were filled with water, and the overhead sunlight that came poking through the rocks above made for some bad ass photos!
|I love my adventure buddy|
|navigating weird, wild and beautiful hallways|
|Stepping into the light|
|back on dry land|
|WILD! I need to hang this on my wall!|
|Ready for the last drop of with my hubs|
|See me droppin' down in the middle there :)|
Go get it!
