*Insta takeover Part 2* Our two boys are the perfect ages for a canyoneering adventure (ages 9 and 11). Our youngest, however, has a fear of heights and isn’t always willing to trying new things. We knew this would be an obstacle going canyoneering, so we talked it up with him beforehand and made sure he knew not only what to expect, but also knew that it would be fun and safe. Once we arrived at @zionponderosa’s resort and got suited up with our equipment, our guides made each person in our group do a “test” rappel on the rock wall there to make sure that everyone felt safe and could do the rappel (such a good idea!). Our little guy was quite apprehensive at first as he peered down a 60 foot wall, but he was also determined to give it a try. The guides were calm and patient as they showed him what to do and reassured him that he would be safe. That first rappel was scary for him, but once he got to the bottom, he realized he could do it! Once we got out inside the canyon, each rappel got easier and more fun for him. In fact, he wanted to go first every time! This was the perfect first time canyoneering for him and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience! . . . . . #ZionPonderosa #MacsExplore #Canyoneering #guidedadventures #trysomethingnew #ZionAdventure #familyvacation #familytime #goeverywhere #takethekids #livelifewithadventure #optoutside #thegreatoutdoors #liveyouradventure #wildandfree #seetheworld #exploreZion #visitZion #zionnationalpark #zionponderosa #macsexplore
