Just back (and happy to be back) from my first canyoneering weekend in Zion. Forrest guided us through some crazy slot canyon country. I was impressed at how remote and committing the canyoneering is within Zion National Park. You could wait a long time for a rescue in that terrain. Photography is fairly challenging in those water slots, most of the pictures are from Kolob Canyon.
Google Earth v_3.1 for iOS has been updated for the iPhone 4’s retina display. The screenshot above came from the Google Earth app on my phone. The wow-factor from this app on the retina display is quite high. The “W” marks Zion Narrows and the red “X” marks Imlay canyon this weekend’s canyoneering objective. My first thought seeing the Imlay terrain: no one is going to find us soon.
