Scott was just telling me how warm the water was when he went through. I want to go through on a day like that! The first few canyons I ever did, and Subway was one, were SHOCKINGLY cold!!!! BRRRR.... But after thinking about it, I don't think that last trip was that cold or the 3 pre/teens we drug along would have been screaming on that park! I know my Drama Queen sure would have been! I might have to rethink the water temperature. That first trip still sticks in my mind!

The younger ones are, but at 13 she is past those. I have not heard of that but Bo has SAR stories! There have been people that have gone in there and got too cold and could not continue and had to be rescued!

Fortunately the swimming sections in the Subway are short.....air temperature makes a huge difference! If it is warm out it's sure a whole lot easier to warm up a bit before the next plunge! When I was yacht racing in 1982 in the southern seas (Sydney to Rio via Cape Horn) on about the 16th day as we were floating through the ice pack at about 55 deg. S Lat. I decided to take a bath on deck. The air temp was frigid and so was the water temp. It took me 2 days to feel warm again! :-)

But you are one of those crazy types that take a dip in an almost frozen pothole during a snow storm. ~laughing~ :D

That would be great and will deserve 10 pts then!

I just asked him - he sent it and I loaded it. ;)

What do you mean then?!!?! Is the smile alone, while swimming in ICE COLD water, not worth 10 points. ~laughing~

Thanks -
you are right in a way.
However, I think the best pic is quite useless if important details cannot be discerned, so I never vote 10 if a pic when clicked to maximum does not show up larger than before.

It is so colorful and pretty there! Some say it's the prettiest slot anywhere, but it's not my favorite. I get to head there again Sunday. I plan on getting my best pictures ever this time! :)

I just went there again yesterday and I think I got my best photos yet! It is an amazing canyon! It was cold in there today so the swimming shots this time were in a drysuit. ;)

The green water in the slot makes for a nice change from the normal slot canyon pic's (not that there is anything wrong with them though)
