Oh. My. Gawd.



Looks like maybe Zion to me. Anyone know for sure? Man, these two were lucky to get out unscathed. (I'm assuming they were OK: You don't usually say "Hooolly shit!" and keep filming when you get hurt. You say something else entirely.)

If it is Zion, I can attest to the nastiness of those approaches and descents. Once you get off the well-beaten paths to the classics, that ground is loose, loose, loose. And don't forget the ticks.

As awful as that seemed, I just couldn't help but laugh. It is comical and scary.

That is insane! The lead hiker is lucky she didn't fall backwards and smash her head on a rock. Then just when you think it's safe that huge boulder comes crashing down.

I'm glad they are OK, but I am thinking they might be a little bit novice by the fact that they didn't yell ROCK!

Hope everyone below was ok.
