All - glad I found this group site today - already been looking at the other postings and am learning lots. Situation - am planning to go to Zion Nation Park next weekend with 14yr son & other dad/son - heard that it may close due to the budget debate. My son & I have done the basic Zion canyons prior (Pine, Keyhole, middle echo, etc) while the other two are complete newbies. Was going to take them down the basic canyons as we are familiar/comfortable with them. Question - If Zion closes what would be good comparable canyons in southern Utah that will be accessible? More details on the group - Everyone is in excellent condition, water savy with outdoor experience (Ocean Lifeguard/EMT, etc), have 4mm full wetsuits, have gear for everyone, etc., but not yet the experience for advanced canyons. will have two cars. Any advice appreciated! Thanks!
