Default Conquering Parker Creek Canyon
A few friends and I (including CB726) decided we would attempt to hike what I am calling "Middle Parker Creek Canyon". This section of the canyon would tie in to the upper half of the lower section we hiked a few months ago. I thought it may be a little bit of a challenge, but like usual, I was wrong. It's not often you have to wade hip deep through a murky swamp in Arizona hoping not to be taken down by some unseen creature. Or have to jump off a small waterfall into numbingly cold water. Or scale super steep canyon walls that crumble away after every step. But we managed to find all of this and more. Here's the first part of our adventure:
