    I will be in Page this weekend. Does anyone want to do Waterholes Canyon Saturday? I could do another canyon as well.

    Supposedly it is quite wet right now and the temperature has "cooled" to the lower to mid 90's for highs:

    Since it is wet, it should be tolerable.

    Luckily the weather is supposed to have a 0% chance of rain as well.

    Just don't plan on showing up on Saturday morning to get a permit: https://www.americancanyoneers.org/arizona/waterholes-canyon/

    The Navajo permit office is under construction and interim procedures are being used until the new facility is completed next year. The office is located at the Navajo Nation Tribal Park – 337 N. Navajo Drive, Page, AZ 86040. It is currently open weekdays (M – F) from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm Navajo (MST) time. The permit costs $12 per person. It appears that you need to ask for Effie or Brenda to actually get the permit in person at the office. They may ask to inspect your gear as a method to ensure you’re qualified for the technical descent and to distinguish you from the tourists that occasionally get trapped in the canyon and require rescue. If you are not in Page, it’s best to call 928-645-0904 to verify the open hours and to be sure that someone is available to issue a permit.
