That Dang Canyon

I went camping for 5 days down in the San Rafael Swell with the OAC.
The first day we arrived, Thursday, they wanted to go hike a slot canyon.
I was Keen to see a Real Slot Canyon so I went with.
The loop hike was called Ding and Dang canyon and it was 4 1/2 miles long.
The students romped about on the rocks and I took gazillions of pictures.
Going up Ding was fun...
but coming down that Dang canyon was HARD.
There were steep spots and they had to teach me some canyoneering techniques like chimneying and they had to help spot me down the tricky climbs.
But I made it!
I am so proud of myself!
It was my first technical canyon, as well as my first slot canyon... but hopefully not my last!
