    I just heard that because of high snowpack, high rockfall danger, lack of funding for the National Parks, and several rescues, Zion National Park is going to close the technical canyons for the remaining season. The announcement will be made later today.

    This is a sad day for canyoneering, but maybe things will change and hopefully 2020 will be better.
