A Trip Done by The Penn State Outing Club
March 7-11, 2005
This foray into the Excalante National Monument and Zion National Park, Utah took place over the 2005 Spring Break. The group backpacked through the massive canyons carved for centuries by rivers and streams. Waterfalls and fantastic vistas punctuated the trip with moments of beauty and awesomeness that even the chicken could get in on. A tale for the ages from this trip involves quicksand, not the cartoon variety, but the real stuff. A member of the group fell victim to this insidious natural phenomenon and became submerged for hours while the others desperately tried to free the entrapped member.
