    Looking for the condition of Baptist Draw in San Rafael Swell Utah, headed there mid October. Is it worth a wet suit? Thanks

    I did Baptist Draw/Upper Chute early September and we did some wading in a few spots up to chest deep. The weather was hot and dry. With the recent rains in Utah and the dropping temperatures I would wear a wetsuit. I believe that it is capable of holding quite a bit of water. Maybe someone out there has done a trip through Baptist Draw in the Fall with it full of water.??

    Baptist Draw pools are famous for their ability to collect debris such as Juniper berries and rat feces. I would wear a wetsuit just for that, after the recent round of rains.
