05-25-2013 Vivian Creek.

This was a really fun canyon in the beautiful San Gorgonio Wilderness, just outside of the town of Redlands. A permit is required to hike the trail. The hike to the drop-in point is lovely.  It took us about 45 minutes, and we gained 1000ft in elevation. 


After we dropped into the watercourse things only got better. Vivian Creek was clear and cool. The water was the perfect temperature for hot day.


The rappels were really fun. On a warm summer day rappelling through the water is rejuvenating. We had to build on anchor, and we replaced a few oversized rapids at a couple of the anchors.





This was a very nice canyon with great views of the San Gorgonio Wilderness. I’ve got to thank John C for getting the permit and organizing the trip. It was a adventure I look forward to doing again in the future.
