    I'm not as energetic as Dusty. Mules are the way to go. If you ever consider it, may I suggest the north rim. Much less crowded and reservations are easier.

    Isn't that what they have mules for? Unfortunately, I believe there is a weight limit, hence I'd have to hoof it!

    True, it's a rush. In a previous thread where I described an EarthRivers trip, we rappelled off a 300 foot sheer wall. Had to stop at the 150 foot point and change ropes. On the way down, I accidentally touched the carabiner, it was burning hot.

    Absolute awesome video. Don't know if I'll ever get an opportunity, but something I'd love to do.

    Be sure to come up I 15 to Kolob Canyon and hike the backside of Zion. Just as pretty but less visitors.

    Very true Ken, Zion is great. I've camped, hiked and repelled there back in the early 80s while living in St. George. Awesome views.
    And yes you can dehidrate there. Proper hydration is very necessary in the desert.
