I don't have a long detailed answer like ya'all, I just like canyons because they are so fun. The beauty drew me in, but the fun keeps me hooked. I was bored at work last night and posted over on Bogley asking what types of canyons people like best, seems everyone likes them all but thought I'd see what you all think. Here is my post from the dark side: So while we have been talking about what our favorite canyon is, some people are not able to pick one specific one as a favorite, so maybe we can talk about what your favorite type of canyon is. When I started canyoneering it was all about Zion. Zion was my favorite place in the world and one big draw for me was that by learning how to get down slots, I could see so much more of the park than I would be able to otherwise. Zion canyons surpassed my expectations and stand out as some of the most amazing places I've been in the park, but Canyoneering ended up being a lot more fun than I expected and my reasons for doing canyons has changed somewhat since. Don't get me wrong, I still love Zion but the character of the canyons are generally pretty similar. Rap and swim, hike a little, and rap and swim. Heaps and Imlay are much more challenging, but are still mainly rap and swim with some difficult pothole problems when not full of water. Canyons outside Zion, especially around Glen Canyon, tend to have more variety. They have shorter drops, many of which can be downclimbed rather than rappelled. They tend to be skinnier and pose their own unique challenges. As my skills improve I find the more varied, and more physical canyons more enjoyable than the straightforward rap and swim type stuff. Canyons like Hard Day Harvey, Choprock, Alcatraz, Trail, Chambers, Zero G, what Tom on his rave calls Frosted Flakes, and Limbo, are all more my style. Anything I can get down without the rope is much more enjoyable to me than rapping (nothing too crazy though). What are ya'll's favorite types of canyons?
