I'm not really sure how to begin this review other than to say that our 3-day 2-night canyoneering trip with Zion Mountain School (ZMS) was probably one of the best outdoor adventure trips we've ever taken!! A big part of that has to do with Ethan, our guide, who was one of the most engaging, interesting, and conscientious guides we've ever met. Thanks Ethan!! If you can, do the multi-day canyoneering trip. It's worth the cost. We went to Parunuweap Canyon, hiked into the canyon, saw Mineral Gulch, set up camp, and the next day spent our day wading, swimming, hiking, climbing, and rappelling through the canyon and through Fat Man's Misery. It was joyful, fun, exhilarating, and exhausting all at the same time. We were completely disconnected and there was not a soul around for 3 days which made the trip even more magical. We also got rained on, saw a mini-flash flood, ate good food around the camp fire, slept under the stars, and engaged in lots of great conversation. While my husband and I have been hiking and climbing a number of times before and are extremely active with Ironmans and marathons, even this trip was sufficiently rigorous and engaging. And the scenery is breathtaking. I seriously did not want to leave. ZMS and its guides are top notch. If you plan to canyoneer, do it in Zion Park, and definitely do it with ZMS.
