Mystery Canyon Technical Canyoneering Zion National Park July 4, 2013
We went up to Zion National Park for the fourth of July, four day weekend. We got drawn in the last minute lottery for Mystery Canyon. The conditions were very dry. Zion had not had any monsoon storms up to this point. Mystery Lake was dry, in fact the only water in the canyon was from the Mystery Spring after the second to last (135′) rappel. The final rappel was fun, slick and in front of dozens of people. Don’t slip!
