Soap Creek  Sucess!

Erin, Justin, Kessler, and I headed down the North Fork Soap Creek for some canyoneering. The slot was short, but fantastic. The canyon was flowing at 1-2 CFS, which was unexpected. Everyone but Kessler got wet on the 2nd to the last rappel.

The canyon was more interesting than expected, but took a bit longer than we thought it would. Once we reached the South Fork, we decided not to go down it to the river. Instead we hiked up canyon to the rim. It was more challenging than expected and the route has changed in recent years. There is now a technical pitch in the canyon. There were a lot of bouolder obstacles as well. We still had enough daylight to make it out by dark.

With NAU Outdoors  Sucess!

led a trip in here with NAU Outdoors. Sweet place. We camped at the bottom for a day and a half and fished and swam. Cool area to just camp. It was pretty hot in the afternoon, like 90 degrees. There were so many little beetles everywehere!!
