Including Fantasy Falls on the Mokelumne...from 10:30 - 15:00 looks like the Mokelumne Canyon and Fantasy Falls for sure

Pretty awesome but I think I'll stick to the trail.

I completely understand- what catches my eye is all the amazing scenery and the fact that there is so much to explore in these canyons. It is hard going...I'm a ww kayaker btw, but no freakin' way am I up for this stuff! But I am impressed by some of these amazing settings. But how to get there? As much of a puzzle as going off-trail in the high country

It looked hard enough trying to shoulder there yaks but with sholder straps looked even worse. Imagine how many trees have to be ducked under or how many times they must remove and then resling them again. It's definately an extreme video.
