    3 injured in Zion National Park flash flood

    ZION NATIONAL PARK, Utah (AP) -- Zion National Park officials say three men who were swept away by a flash flood in a canyon were able to signal for help and be rescued . . .

    The men from the Las Vegas area were hiking in Spry Canyon on Saturday when about an inch of rain fell in less than 30 minutes . . .

    All three men were washed over a 40-foot drop and two of them went over another 60-foot plunge as the water rushed through the canyon walls. . .

    Ran into 4 guys from California in the Subway today.  They said that they waited out a flash flood just above the final rap in Lodge Canyon yesterday.  They were none the worse for wear, but described a terrifying hour and a half "crouched and shaking while the water ran over our heads."  After that, they just rapped down and walked out.





  3. Oh gosh, I sure wish we knew more about this and who was there. My thoughts and prayers go out to the injured and their families and the lucky teammate who escaped.

    Be careful out there!
