Dark Canyons. Drive down the evening of the 27th. Dark Canyon is a major side canyon of Lake Powell. We will backpack down the Sundance trail to the bottom of Dark Canyon and backpack/day pack upstream to Young Canyon and downstream to the Colorado River and then hike out (Goggle: Hiking Sundance Trail - Dark Canyon - Road Trip Ryan). This is a deep scenic canyon with Indian petroglyphs, waterfalls and swim holes. Leader has an extra backpack & tent & a water filter & camp stove he can share.
