    Thanks for the picture. I see in the background on the left side where we went down before I believe - is it the worn spot where the fellow in the blue and red helmet is?

    My kids (10-8-4-2) really liked the "Many Pools" hike in the book last time we were down there.

    Based on what our scout troop does to them, I'd say they are pretty bomb proof. They stay dry as long as nothing is touching the sides. Very dry, in fact -- I've been impressed after sitting out a...

    We camp w/ 4 kids all the time (age 10-2). But our "list" is parked next to the house -- it is a 27' travel trailer. Makes it real easy, just throw clothes and food in and we're off.

    Scout in 2 different states (neither were Utah), now scout leader in Utah. Can confirm.
