    I went into this canyon with low expectations. seems that more people I talked to hated this canyon than liked it. well.... they were all a bunch of LIARS!



    L I A R S!!!



    Behunin was a stunning canyon with huge walls, beautiful drops and narrow slots. It all of it comes after one of the most amazing approach hikes I have ever done!



    As a side trip to this canyon we made a quick trip up angles landing! That is a once-in-a-lifetime hike for most people. for canyoneers it is just part of an approach hike! So Cool!

    Josh's first time to the top. I was more excited to show my friends this place than I was to see it again for myself!

    Fantastic. Love the acknowledgement of the small stuff in the GRAND scale around you.

    That looks like an an amazing trip, in an amazing canyon. I wonder what it is that people don't like about it? In looking at those pictures it would be on my list for sure if I had the rope skill necessary to check it out.

    I'd heard the same thing about Behunin...that people didn't like it. I'm with you, I thought it was great and fun. Great pics and thanks for sharing. Looks like you guys had a blast!
