A Classic Escalante Canyoneering Destination
Visit remote and awesome Neon Canyon, a canyoneering and backpacking experience for strong, capable outdoorspersons. While the backpacking route to Neon is not difficult, and the canyon itself is not particularly technical, both the route and the canyon are exceptionally beautiful and rugged, without any civilized amenities to get in the way. Neon's "Golden Cathedral" finish (above) is world-renown, featured in numerous backcountry magazines and equipment advertisements. Come join us on this trip, and that will be you, rapping through that ancient beautiful pothole arch.
The "price of admission" to this stunning landscape is carrying the equipment and food we need for three days to the canyon, and then carrying it back out. Between the carrying, we live a simple backcountry lifestyle, sharing great food, preparing for adventures, and relaxing togegther at the end of long days. This trip isn't for everyone - some people NEED a shower at day's end - but for those able to let go of civilzed niceties, this trip is an incredible, freeing experience.
