This past weekend involved an absolutely stellar 3 days in Zion. Many more details to come I promise… But for now, here’s a taste.

Ryan, Mindy and I busted out Kolob Canyon with the MIA exit in casual style. Mindy was incredible the way she dealt with Ryan and I as well as the incredibly cold conditions. I am so excited for future canyoneering adventures with her, preferably a bit warmer however. The canyon was as beautiful as ever with clear pools, fall leaves and crack climbs so good looking that I was drooling as I walked through the canyon.

Buzz and I did East Temple in record time, 1:44:40 (parking lot to parking lot), shaving over an hour off our previous time. Right after we headed over to West Temple and took a more leisure style doing it in 5 hrs XX min (Buzz to fill in specifics), completely what Buzz called the “Zion Temple Double”. Ryan joined us for part of each temple.

Buzz and I embarked on an incredibly good linkup, starting at the Spry Canyon start, then up Deertrap Mtn, over to south face of Great White Throne, then out Hidden Canyon. It was a grand adventure and took us just over 8 hrs.
