My wife and I have been on the road for a couple weeks now, puttering around the Southwest and avoiding the rain in the Pacific Northwest.  Last week we spent a couple days in Zion National Park, relaxing, hiking, and adventuring.  Not really feeling like going climbing, we opted to descend the Park’s classic technical canyon–Pine Creek.  After a hitchhike to shuttle the RV, we dropped into the top of Pine Creek just east of the tunnel.  A series of ten or so rappels interspersed with pools, slots, and sandy floors awaited us.  The water was a bit cold this late in the season, but one result was that we had the entire canyon to ourselves!  Undoubtedly, there is more canyoneering is in our future…
