Parkett Creek Canyoneer 6-14-15

WHOA!!
A large group of 10 of us dropped the Parkett Creek Canyon on Sunday. Wow! What a blast! 6-waterfall rappels, several swims, a couple of water slides, and even a jump (for those who wanted). It took us three hours to go .4 of a mile….and that was fast for a group of ten. 5-hours truck to truck including the approach and final scramble. The longest rappel was 150’…with lots of water, and no way to stay out of it…all the way down. Inside the canyon doesn’t see much sun, so it was very cold…good thing we wore wetsuits, although we were shivering by the time we were at the bottom of the final rap.
Super Fun Shit!
