drowning in a slot canyon

That is the big hazard with a hike through Paria Canyon on the Utah – Arizona border.

Just organizing for Paria, I’m going end of October as there is a lower risk of flash flood.

Yikes!

I just learned that Utah suffered a massive rain storm already this season. Two hikers survived flooding on the Escalante river to post a fantastic trip report and photos.
