Monday morning 10/9: We woke up to rain, and the weather report indicated high flash flood danger. So much for canyoneering. We ate
a leisurely breakfast in town, poked around in the shops for a while, and watched Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure at the theater. When
we came out around 1:30 PM, the sun was out and it was starting to clear up. Hmmm. What shall we do? We quickly snagged a permit
for Keyhole Canyon and drove up through the tunnel to the trailhead. It's a short sweet little canyon, but lots of fun. Still, we had to rush a
bit, since they were doing construction on the tunnel and would close for the night at 6:00 PM. We quickly threw our gear into the packs,
left the car around 3:00 PM, and motored over the slickrock pass to the start of the slot. We got back to the car at 5:30, threw all the wet
gear back in the car and zoomed back down the road and through the tunnel. Whew!
