Enchanting narrows in Lower Too Wet

We set out one morning to attempt a presumably unclimbed, obscure peak deep, deep in the Zion backcountry. Getting somewhat close to our "trailhead," we found the road wet and muddy. Parking at the last dry spot, we set out with an extra 2.5 miles added to our already long day.

To make a long story short, we eventually reached the base of the peak in question, just in time for clouds to start rolling in to threaten us with rain. Banking on the safe bet, we bailed on our attempt and dropped into Lower Too Wet to make a quick(ish) escape. What we found was a mellow canyon with a few very charming spots.

After about 18 miles of effort, we eventually returned to our spotted vehicle and made the drive back around to snag the other car.
