May 29, 2004 - I have to admit that I became interested in Bluejohn Canyon after reading about the Ralston accident. We descended the Main Fork Bluejohn Canyon. It had just rained a week before so we had to wade through a few pools of water. It is a very nice canyon.
April 24, 2005 - We entered the West Fork and did the main exit into Horseshoe Canyon. It was a drought year so the pool at the end of the big rappel was mostly dry. The weather was warm and the hike out was not very fun with the sun shining on us.
I first noticed the canyon while hiking up from Horseshoe in the early 90's. At the blocking falls I noticed "hey, it looks like there might be a slot canyon up there". A few years later I returned with a WMC group and we completed the entire canyon Main Fork to Horseshoe and found out that it was a great slot canyon complex.
I told some people about it (including a writer), but little did I know that it would become one of the most famous and popular canyons in the state of Utah.
