Rick and guest Alison

Thank you Alison for sending this photo of you and Rick, taking a breather after hiking out of the canyon.  Nice shot!  Looks like you're ready for ice cream back at the shop!

This past Friday Rick and I took the afternoon and went for a hike.  We just love getting off the beaten track.  Loved this road on the way home!

Got Mud?

Canyons were a tad muddy a couple of weeks ago.  I think Rick wore it well!

Summer coming to an End

Our 17th Season is quickly coming to an end!  Just a couple of months to go, but what a wonderful season it has been so far.  Fall brings fabulous weather and awesome time in the canyons.  Also, if you are in Escalante for a few days, the mountain right outside of town will have gorgeous leaf peeping.  A must do in the fall is a drive on Hell's Backbone Road.

If you are visiting this Fall, be sure to stop by our shop to check out our new retail section for your slot canyon needs.  Footwear by Five Ten and La Sportiva, BlueWater Ropes, Petzl and Black Diamond Equipment, Chums etc.  We hope to see you!

Girl Scouts

Last week we had the pleasure of spending a couple of days with a group of Girl Scouts from Phoenix, AZ.  Rick, Craig and Ian had a great time with these ladies in the slot canyons.  The girls learned seated bridges, foot bridges, body bridges and smearing techniques, along with teamwork and trust exercises.    

All smiles ladies!

Rick and Craig demonstrate rappelling safety and bottom belays.  SAFETY FIRST!

Summer Canyoneering

The Frankenberg family joined us for a day in the slots last week.  Escalante has been fortunate to get lots of rain this spring to help make up for a very dry winter.  This has made for a wet and muddy fun canyoneering season!  Come join us for some rockin good times on the ropes!

KSL Outdoors TV Shoot

Hello Canyoneers & Future Canyoneers!  It has been a super busy Spring here in Escalante.  Our tours have been packed, the accommodations in town busting at the seams and waits to get into the restaurants!  If you haven't visited Escalante, come for a visit and join the action.  

I took the photo below this morning as the team sat down to make a plan for a day of canyoneering.  Adam Eakle with KSL Outdoors is spending the day shooting with us for a piece on canyoneering safety.  We are excited to have him (back) in the canyons for a day!  The weather is awesome, so here is hoping for some great shots with today's crew.  We'll keep you posted!

Spring is Here!

Greetings canyoneers and future canyoneers!  Spring has arrived early here in Escalante and therefore our season is already rockin and rollin!  Spring Breakers are arriving in Southern Utah to enjoy this fabulous weather.  (it could be snowing)... Trees are already greening up and the flowers are blooming.  Crew out in the canyons today, so I thought I would post a flower shot from in front of the shop this morning.  Cheers!
