Havasupai - August 2014
This place had been on the radar for quite some time, but always seemed such a big endeavor because of the distance to get there (Southern side of the Grand Canyon). Alene was originally going to be going on this trip, but due to the amount of time she had ...

Mystery Canyon - Zion National Park - June 2014
I had been intrigued by Mystery for quite a while, but I typically avoid doing a first decent of a canyon until I've gone down it with someone with more experience or someone that has done it before. 2014 was going to be the year for sure. April and Bill ha...
