A few weeks ago Gavin, and I and his family all went to St. George, Utah to go rappelling. This was our first time rappelling and I felt so much safer rappelling knowing that Gavin’s uncle is certified in rappelling for 15+ years. We started a little after 1pm on Thursday and didn’t finish till after 7pm. We had lunch before we left but we packed along some snacks and tons of water since it was a hot, dry day in the desert. The dry heat really got to me and I ended up getting sick, but I toughed it out till we were finished. We did a total of 5 different rappels: 15ft, 20ft, 50ft, 100ft, and 200ft – some of them even going down into water which was pretty cool. The 200ft rappel was by far the scariest one. You have no idea how glad I was to be back on land. I will say it was definitely an experience and I would probably do it again, just not down ones this big. I would have loved to share more photos with you but I was just taking in all the beautiful scenery around me and it was always a hassle to grab my phone out of Gavin’s backpack each time.
Have any of you rappelled before? If so, where?
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great start to the week! xx
