Canyoning: Like White Water Rafting Without the Raft

What’s better than hang gliding through the Swiss Alps?? Well nothing, but canyoning down some crazy rapids definitely is a close second. I think it gets your adrenaline going more than hang gliding, which is more relaxed. In a nutshell, canyoning is like white water rafting with the raft. It’s a combination of riding the rapids, jumping over waterfalls, and rappelling down cliffs. It’s tough to explain, so I’ll just show you pictures instead. Here’s how we began.

This is where I accidentally slammed into the side of the cliff trying to swing around it. It didn’t feel all that great.
