Yep, I'm still way behind on getting these TRs out but...better late than never, eh?

Last spring just as everything was starting to shut down / go to hell-in-a-handbasket, I joined as a co-leader of a Canyoneer hike up Cool Canyon.  Like many of the Canyoneer hikes, it drew a big crowd (this season the public hikes are on hiatus for obvious reasons).  We met @ the start of the rd into the canyon, then caravaned to the trailhead one mile further.

Gathering @ the start of the rd.:

Big crowd, & the last

Heading up the canyon:

Going up dry falls is more difficult for some ppl than others:


We hiked as far as a prominent split in the canyon, though one could go much further.  As always the hike had a set mileage & time limit, so we snacked here & then headed back down.

Restaurants were still open:
