Canyoning! (Waterfall rappelling)

Yesterday, I got to experience one of the scariest things I've ever tried. I went canyoning, which is where you rappel down waterfalls. We rappelled down 5 waterfalls, the biggest being about 40 feet. It was hard to get the hang of at first because the rocks were really slippery, and sometimes the pools of water you landed in were up to your waist! Here are some pics from the trip :]

The last few photos are from the 40 foot waterfall. The rope ran out about four feet from the bottom so you had to jump into the pool below. It really freaked me out because I didn't know the rope ran out and all of a sudden I was falling! The water was above my waist, though so I landed just fine. It was pretty difficult, but I would suggest it to anyone as a great experience.
