Canyoneering at Yankee Doodle Canyon

Unforgettable Canyoneering in Yankee Doodle Canyon

The canyoneering trip was an experience I’ll never forget.

It was an optional activity that me, Dallin, and Grady went on with Cam in Yankee Doodle canyon.

Once we started, it was impossible to climb back out the way we started, so we got to really push our limits.

There was hiking, climbing, rappelling, chimney-crawling through slot canyons, wading, and even some swimming.

The canyon was beautiful, and there were lots of purple flowers blooming.

It was warm outside, but the water was freezing cold.

I was exhausted physically and emotionally by the end, but it felt great to have accomplished it.

Rocky obstacles and pools of water

Red Cliffs Hike With Rocky Obstacles and Pools of Water

 

We had a great time out at the Red Cliffs hike recently.

There was a lot of runoff, which created some beautiful clear pools of cold water that only
Grady dared swim in.

Amber, Dylan and I hiked in further while the rest hung out at the first pool.

We had to pass a rocky obstacle using some rope to avoid falling into the pool of water below.

It was kinda tricky, and a lot of fun.

Activity exercising

Exercise/Activity Committee Keeping Up the Fun

The student committee that I work with is the exercise and activity committee.

Lee and Wesley are on this committee, and have been doing a good job of keeping up on their assignments.

Their job is to make sure that we have activities planned every Saturday.

Each month they plan two activities that can be physically exerting, such as a hike, or rappelling.

They also plan two activities that are more geared toward just something that is fun, such as laser tag, or miniature golf.

They coordinate with all the students’ interests and plan the activities.

All I do is help them when they need it.

We’ve been enjoying regular activities that have been both fun and challenging, and the students are doing a great job of planning them. —Cam, TFL Mentor
