I last visited this section of canyon about two years ago. There is a lot of beautiful canyon to enjoy - and it is good to do early in the season because there are no swims (only a few wades) - and abseils can be avoided by scrambling and climbing down logs.

After the trip - we had to say farewell to Tina. Her visit from Germany was almost finished. But we will meet up again some time in the future.
