Tanya - Spry Canyon

Bo and I took a group of biologist through Spry Canyon in Zion National Park, that were studying Canyon Tree Frogs. The photo of me is from that trip.

I hope the biologist had all a fairly low body mass index...LOL. Nice pic. Cheers.

Re: Tight!

Oh yeah... this canyon had lots of tight spots! ;p

Some of the boys were on the large size too. What is the funniest is watching the guys get their big packs through things. They often have 200 ft of rope in those things and they are hard to get through and down things.

Re: Tight!

200 ft is a lot of rope! I'm assuming those
boys found the situation to be a bit
challenging! Do you have a link where I
can view the results of their trip?

Re: Tight!

Lots of canyons take 200 foot of rope. Sure here is Spry Canyon.

great shot..

of you Tanya! Looks like fun. Spry is one of my very favorites - I remember those little frogs in the pools of water - fun for a biologist I'm sure.

Re: great shot..

Thanks :) I like it too. Bo took this one. The students seemed to have fun doing what they do with the frogs. Spry has some fun stuff, after you get up that entrance. Poor kids were hauling some heavy gear up it for their research. Good thing they are young!

A nice shot...

To each their own I guess, the kind of crazy Canyon stuff you do is not for me!

Re: A nice shot...

You need to try it. I do all kinds of things. This is just one of many. Variety is life! :)
