Canyoneering with the Perrys

From November 6th - 13th, 2021, Steph and I enjoyed a week of canyoneering with Cole, Grant, Reid, Court, and Russ.  We have had the pleasure of meeting and canyoneering with all of the Perry boys over the years, so it was a real treat to get out with five of them at the same time.  This was Cole's fifth trip from Texas to canyoneer with us!  I'm amazed every time he makes the journey.

During that week, we completed Constrychnine, Woody, No Kidding, Witch's Cauldron, Boss Hog, Merry Piglet, Horse Play, Foolin' Around, Off the Hook, and Shenanigans.

Little Wild Horse / Goblin's Lair / Goblette's Lair

On November 1, 2020, we made the most of our visit to the Goblin Valley area by visiting Little Wild Horse, Goblin's Lair, and Goblette's Lair.  It was a great way to wrap up our family vacation for 2020.

Steph and I rappelled into Goblin's Lair about 9 years previous.  At the time, almost nobody knew about the chamber, and even fewer had ventured there with a rope.  Back then, there was no real trail into or out of the chamber.  Today, there is a very wide trail to/from the chamber with signage, and a permit is required to go canyoneering there.  It is interesting how times have changed.

Next time, we will bring headlamps and try to make it through the tunnel that goes under the rockfall.
