Spent a week in the beautiful Pacific Northwest this past month doing some fun canyoning. Full pics and story at CanyoneeringUSA.

S. Fork Snoqualmie – A technically easy canyon with a nice big rappel down Franklin Falls, and plenty of jumps and swims.

Denny Creek – Another easy canyon, close to Snoqualmie. Not quite as much to offer as it’s neighbor, but has two big raps down waterfalls.

Gorge Creek – This one gets high marks for quick and easy access, interesting technical challenges, and raw beauty.

Thornton Creek – Big multistage waterfall rappels, boiling potholes, natural anchor problems and huge flow. It’s the real deal.

Cypress Creek – A fantastic canyon with a deep gorge and lots of pools and downclimbs, located right in the city of Vancouver. Also home to the best rappel of the weeklong fest.
