I'm just starting to plan a 3 week road trip for next July.
We've never been to Utah, but the one thing I've always wanted to do is hike a slot canyon. That said, I know summer has flash flood risks in these canyons.
How predictable are the rains and subsequent flood events? Could we be confident heading in that we"ll be OK if the forecast is for clear skies?I know mornings are less likely to encounter the thunderstorms, so that's when we'd choose.
Are some of the canyons more/less prone to flash floods or is it just related to where the rain hits?
Thanks for helping me figure out whether this is something we can safely do!
