    Pine Creek June 09 2017

    We (2 adults and 2 kids ages <10) did Pine Creek last Friday.
    The canyon was semi-full and for the most part water level was no more than chest height (there may have been a couple spots were I had to swim for a very short distance (I'm 6')). I wore 3mm Farmer John and 2mm neoprene socks, and was not cold at all. Kids wore 3mm wetsuits with additional 3mm neoprene-vest on top and were just fine (lesson learned with the vests, from doing Keyhole with them a couple weeks back ).
    Apparently, there's an added ~30' mandatory rappel (after walking on two ~10' logs onto a chokestone boulder) before the 2nd to last rappel I didn't remember from doing Pine a couple years back (@Shane - might want to update your climb-utah page :)).
    Total trip took us just under 10 hrs. (Yes...not a typo)...we took our time, and kids LOVED the hiking out boulder section (I think we met every frog in this canyon and know their name and family name ). Bottom line - FUN family trip with a taste of more.

    The logs below that rappel shift every year or so. Sometimes you can go under, sometimes not. And sometimes something inbetween.
