"We were caught in a flash flood in one of Utah's most famous slot canyons. We checked the weather the day prior and there was no chance of rain..we were out of cell phone/internet coverage. This is proof of how fast things can get ugly! We had hiked Little Wild Horse Canyon in the San Rafael Swell before always being cautious, the forecast had changed to %20 chance..this was a fairly light rain, hard to believe the results! We had hiked up further, this video is us running back to find the girls we left behind. We found them in an opening waiting out the storm. The lower slots are actually much narrower than these, luckily my wife knew to backtrack to this opening as soon as she saw the water coming. Not sure of the results had we not found them..always get to higher ground and wait it out, you won't outrun it..fun as it was to pretend for a while:)"
