Canyoneering San Antonio Canyon

Canyoneering San Antonio Canyon

After a long break from canyoneering, we made our spring debut by running San Antonio Falls. With the pleasures of a sunny day and ice-cold waterfalls pounding our heads, we couldn’t have asked for a better start to the season…although we were both admittedly out of shape. Enjoy the video!

Canyoneering Supercloud – San Gabriel Mountains

Canyoneering Supercloud – San Gabriel Mountains

After a canyoneering sabbatical, the Wandering Fools ran Supercloud the day after Thanksgiving because #optoutside. There was light rain the day before–enough to make the ground damp and add a trickle of water throughout the canyon–but not enough to make it dangerous. It was just enough to make the experience fun.

We did not mind sleeping in a little to recover from the previous 10-mile day. At 9 am, we parked our car at the entry point for Pine Creek,…

Canyoneering The Subway (Russell Gulch) – Zion National Park

A Long Weekend In Zion Ms. Fool and I decided to take a long weekend to run some classic Zion National Park canyons. First up was The Subway via Russell Gulch. We packed up all of our gear, picked up a friend at LAX, then headed north, arriving in Zion at around 1 pm.  After retrieving our canyoneering permits from the wilderness permit desk, we decided to make the most of the daylight by hiking Angels Landing. Angels Landing is an…
