After my intro to canyoneering in January, I had been dying to go out and do a longer canyon. My friend Clint set up a group on Leap Day to do Parker Canyon in the Sierra Ancha near Roosevelt Lake. Pretty far from Tucson for a day out, but it proved to be well worth it. I met up with five canyoneers in Globe and was excited for my first time out on this side of the lake. The drive up was beautiful and when we reached our destination, the first thing we realized was that it was going to be a chilly day! The scenery was worth every finger-numbing moment and we had a fantastic time. Here’s a video made by one of the other members of the trip:
