Tanya, you've outdone yourself. A definitive resource page for U.S. canyoneering.
Well I had not got a compliment from you for a while, so I had to try harder. ;)
Tanya, you are such a charmer. Again, a fabulous page-great work.
I have a weakness of saying the first thing that I feel when I read something - often before I finish reading things. It gets me in trouble all the time. ;p
you have a unique style for putting things together and communicating with people on a computer. I've never heard your
voice before, but I'm sure you could grab a person's attention.
Excuse me, but I didn't even know there was such a thing as the American Canyoneering Association. Job very well done!!!
(Where I live, most of the news comes by way of passenger pigeon!)

~blush~ Thank You. I love to build things and lately I have been into building on the computer.
If you don't know the American Canyoneering Association, then you don't know canyoneering! The top dogs love to fight with each other. I get a kick out of watching them go at it, but at the same time I wish they would all just hug and make up.
In Alaska, the saying is: "If you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes!" I don't know what the saying is in southern Utah, but you'd think they could hug on Valentine's Day!
You would think! I happen to enjoy following, but the 'lead dog' thing is all about male testosterone I think. It's actually sort of cute as long as you are not in the middle of it! Most people like to lead because they enjoy the challenge of finding a route and working out the problems. I just enjoy letting them problem solve while I take photos. ;)
In sled-dog racing, the 'lead dog' is not always a male, so gender
would not be an issue. But, as products of the "Age of Enlightenment," wisdom is our true friend. We can apply wisdom
TO everything from canyoneering, bungee-jumping, kite-flying,
to walking the dog. Thanks for making me think! ... SCARY!!!
If we could only all be wise all of the time. :)
Not only is it a great page in terms of information but I'm really impressed with the colors that you get in your pictures. Beautiful!
Thank you! I do like to be colorful. ;)
That's because you are good at climbing. It does seem dangerous in there but few have died in Zion due to flash floods. Did you see the story by Bo Beck where the entire elite Zion Search and Rescue Team was almost wiped out by one?! And in one of Zion's driest canyons!
Flash Flood Story
I don't know what scares me most! Dying in a flash flood or falling off a mountain. You are right -- be safe! plan well!
Dang, you are prolific -- you and moutaingazelle! What do they feed you up in Utah, to give you so much energy?
and 2 hours on the treadmill every day plus weekends keeping up with Bo. He is the one with energy! I feel like a slog when with him.
GEE, MoapaPk ! What are you talkin' about? You have Anya Jingle,
Susan M and the ICE CREAM MAN in your neck of the woods!!!
Plus all those Las Vegas Showgirls. and the BLUE MAN GROUP!
Legend has it that 'mountaingazelle' is a AWESOME person, but I
haven't figured out Tanya's diet yet. Maybe we should ALL treat
her to a steak dinner, with Brambleberry Pie for dessert!!!
In Utah we eat JELL-O
Oops, the phones are gonna ring now...
It's okay, maybe you can hire an agent. I always wondered
why I ate so much (wonderful) tasting 'JELL-O' when I was growing up
in northern Utah. Have you ever tried it in a blender, with milk and ice
cubes ... it really hits the spot. YUMMY! I hope mountaingazelle
and Tanya get the MEALS they deserve, especially on St. Valentine's Day!
