|A balancing act while in a dry section of the slot canyon|
In the end, Aidan did stay dry by riding on mom's shoulders, with Lara nobly standing in the water to get him across. We were all mostly wet by then, and at the last curve of the slot, I picked a chunk of ice out of the water. COLD.
|Definitely not dry anymore, Aidan!|
Aidan immediately fell in, negating all our efforts to keep his shoes dry, but by then no one cared. Nick did go for a swim, and emerged really cold and grateful for the hot chocolate and dry towels we had brewed up while waiting for him to exit the slot again. The journey definitely whet my appetite for more slots, and when the weather gets hot that cold water is actually going to feel good!
