essay bro

Deer Creek runs dry in the summers.  Spring is the season to visit Deer Creek.

We are very anxious to visit the big exciting canyon 2.5 miles farther upstream and we feel confident that there will be higher waterfall/waterfalls in the Upper Deer Creek Canyon.  It appears on Google Satellite image, that this Upper Deer Creek Canyon may even host some technical canyoneering.

Note the canyons that are marked in red, likely host technical canyoneering -requiring ropes, helmets and technical canyoneering gear...
