    Kinda like "keeper" potholes. If you got out, it ain't a keeper!

    Haha! I can say the same damn thing.
    Suddenly my feet are feet of mud
    It all goes slo-mo
    I don't know why I am crying
    Am I suspended in Gaffa?

    ďIf a 65-year old woman got stuck in the slot canyon, then surely me, a young whippersnapper could do it no problem...Ē

    If I was in Denver and loved the outdoors (and didnít know much about canyoneering) and saw these images/videos, it would of opened my world to this area and I would be on the next plane out there...

    ...only to get stuck, of course.



    Byron has foresight, Iíll be willing to bet in the next 5-10 years we will see a signpost at the entrance of each of the Irish canyons.
