Wednesday, 8/9/2017, technical canyoneering in flowing water-Ouray Canyoneering festival

more details to come--hold the date,  the annual canyoneering festival is in Ouray Colorado, home of many technical canyons with flowing water, amazing rappels, great scenery and a great weekend.  You need to be a competent rappeller and have gear for sustained time in water--i.e. a full wet suit or dry suit and have canyoneering experience.  There are many canyons of various levels but all will have flowing water.   We'll carpool down to the festival,  car camp near town, and do varous canyons during the day and enjoy the restaurants or cook at the camp site at night.  I will reserve car camp spots for those who register by early July.  You will need to sign up for the Ouray festival seperately.  More details to come.  Contact me if interested even if not certain.  I want to get a feel of the intereset level and see how many camp sites to reserve--they fill up fast.
