    This is more a photo diary of our hike down Orderville as the pictures tell the story.
    Myself and my friend Richard met up with 5 other canyoneers who we'd made contact with through websites and the great group and scenery made for a memorable day.
    Despite a forecast of only 10% chance of rain we were hit by 20 minutes heavy heavy rain which brought out the waterfalls. We were in one of the narrowest parts of the canyon and almost at the Narrows, so with the huge area upcanyon there was concern until we found a high bank to clamber up and sit it out for 40 minutes.
    There was a good flow then for the hiking to the Narrows which were full of brown muddy water deep enough for people to float down on their backs

    No, just down Orderville. I haven't done many canyons so decided to rappel rather than down climb the drops, also partly to gain experience in an easy canyon

    I think Orderville has kicked off many a canyoneers' obsession, and is a good place to figure a few things out.
    Growing up my dad had what can only be called an obsession with this canyon. We did it more than a dozen times through the years, even though he could barely move for days afterwards the last few trips. On a couple of those we could have used a dry suit, instead of praying for a small patch of sun.

    Nice to see some of it again. thanks
