  1. sorry to hear..Canyon hiking can be dangerous, Maybe a boat life preserver should be required.

  2. this was very preventable needless tragedy they were warned that morning of high probability of flash flooding . I watched the helicopter take out two of the hikers so sad

  3. I've hiked the Narrows twice and each time not only did I have a permit but if there was any doubt about rain we didn't go. The best advice always comes from the Ranger station. If the rangers urge caution, it's never worth it to test it. Life is dangerous enough.

  4. Great, now there's going to be 23 more new taxes and 12 new laws for California people. Thanks a lot assholes…

  5. The thought of this group goes through my head every time I drop into a canyon

  6. Angels Landing is NOT dangerous.  The Narrow is dangerous.  You can never be sure about the weather there.  But it should be your business if you go.  I would not.

  7. For Judgement-(DEATH) comes for Esau who is Amalek, who are Edom, which are the Caucasian nations by way of the WRATH OF THE LAMB.

    REVELATION 2:9
    I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich)-(LORD YASHAYA KNOWS OUR OPPRESSION- AFFLICTION & DESTRUCTION AT THE HANDS OF OUR ENEMIES AS HE HIMSELF ENDURED THEM FOR US-BUT WE ARE RICH BECAUSE WE ARE THE LORD’S HERITAGE-WE ARE THE WORLD & THE WORLD WAS CREATED FOR US), and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews- (AMALEK-EDOM-THE CAUCASIAN NATIONS), and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan-(THESE WICKED SERPENTS ARE THE CHIEF HOUSE OF THE DEVIL HIMSELF).

    NOW WHO SHALL DENY THIS REPORT?

  8. They're from Southern California. That explains it. Thank the local news services out there for saying it's a "flash flood" every time they get anything over two inches of rain. I'm sure, when they heard that on the radio, that was what they were expecting.

  9. To avoid flash flood, you do not go down, you go up…

  10. on the second set of hikers with the go pro–I do not understand why they were freaked out when in fact they were way up on the side of the chasm. How did they think the water would get at them?–instead they ran DOWN TOWARDS IT . Could they not hunker down and take the rain for a while??

  11. We have this thing called The Weather Channel.. watch it before you go out doors.

  12. Sometimes is hard not to follow your dreams even though the risks are high

  13. Why hike there??? its happened to others wha a stupid thing to do. better things for thrill not this

  14. If there is a chance of rain within 100 miles North DO NOT ENTER these canyons. Local long time Utahans know this.

  15. Nothing to do with the excess money accept take chances with your life?

  16. I have kicked the narrows two times and it was so beautiful and I also kicked emerald pools that one when u get to the waterfall and theres the weird thing in the wall it made me feel phosterphobix

  17. Never underestimate mountainwest. I always try to give people advice but I've been told I'm not a know it all or the only expert… Well … This happens…
