Memories from ZAC Client Jerry King

Few clients have accrued more stories with Zion Adventure Company than Jerry King.

Canyoneering Movie from ZAC Client Jerry King

A native of Laguna Beach, California, Jerry has taken numerous canyoneering courses from us over the years, introducing many friends to the sport along the way. After his most recent visit this September, Jerry made this video, which includes some basic details on canyoneering AND photos from two canyon descents in Zion. Notably, Jerry and his crew descend Jolley Gulch, a canyon often peered into from above (via the East Rim Trail), but rarely descended. Thanks, Jerry, for putting together the video and sharing it with us!
