For Your Safety

This tour may encounter mud and shallow water in various slot canyons. Weather can also change our itinerary as flash flooding can and often does create extremely dangerous conditions in slot canyons. We will never enter a slot canyon with thunderstorms in the area or over a canyon’s collection area. We will have several alternative slot canyons or activities available if weather prohibits our entering a particular slot.

Equipment You Will Need

  • Good climbing shoes
  • A back pack (one designed for camera gear and tripod)
