Choose Between Two Options
- $79 for a one-day non-tech canyoneering, yoga in the wild, or outdoor photography adventure ($295 value)
- $99 for a one-day technical canyoneering trip ($295 value)
On non-technical canyoneering adventures, guides lead guests through winding canyons and sculpted sandstone cliffs in Southern Utah. They may help participants traverse the history-steeped red-rock canyons within the Dirty Devil/Robber’s Roost Wilderness, or scale parts of the 100-mile Waterpocket Fold, an exposed warp of layers in the Earth’s crust, at Capitol Reef National Park. The single-day yoga trips hike to a picturesque canyon landscape, where groups can practice yoga, eat lunch, and just take in the surroundings. Outdoor Photography adventures explore the natural settings with an eye on how to capture that majesty on film.
Get In The Wild
Though he once dreamed of becoming an astronaut, Christopher Hagedorn instead found his passion on the Earth; he's worked as a geotechnical engineer, national forest hydrologist, wilderness leadership instructor and outdoor adventure guide. After roaming the country on more than 30 extended wilderness trips, he came to rest in the North Cascade Mountains where he leads adventure day trips and wilderness-skills classes. He and his team of experienced guides lead explorers of all ages on Family Adventure Backpacking trips to secluded and mostly unknown destinations, tackling rocky beaches, mountain hillsides, and coniferous forests.
On mountaineering trips, Get In The Wild shows groups how to traverse North Cascades National Park's rugged peaks, roaring waterfalls, and glaciers without having to arm-wrestle bears for passage. Canyoneering trips explore the Dirty Devil and Robber's Roost Wilderness, which got its name from the pack of outlaws traveling with Butch Cassidy and the Wildbunch Gang; more recently, Aron Ralston's ordeal and rescue, portrayed in the 2010 movie 127 Hours. During trips, groups will b navigating historic sandstone cliffs, rocky domes, and winding canyons; and give photographers the chance to focus their lenses on the wilderness of Southern Utah. Throughout their adventures, the guides keep their charges fueled with gourmet camp food, preparing vegetarian, vegan, and kosher options upon request.
They also lead classes in backpacking, glacier climbing, snow camping, canyoneering and wilderness leadership to help adventurers blaze their own trails.
