Hiking in a Beautiful Canyon!

Hiking in a Beautiful Canyon!


– [Carl] Oh, look at these
awesome off roaders man! – If anybody’s master blaster
it’s that dude right there. (laughing) – [Carl] We got a flag whip, and we’ve been rock crawling
the last couple days, and now we’re taking on the sand. Here we go. Is our flag scraping? Yep
(laughing) – [Man] I think it’s surviving though. – [Carl] It’s gonna survive. Here we go, oh Jesus Toyota. Dude, these sick rock crawling buggies. (laughs) It looks like so much fun. Oh yeah, here we go.
(revving) Whoo! Have you ever taken this
out on the sand before? – No (laughs).
– Here we go! More shenanigans!
(laughing) Oh yeah, off roadin’! Whoo!
(laughing) I had no idea we were gonna have this much fun on this trip, man! This has been so much fun! The terrain here is so
different than what I’m used to. Don’t bury it, don’t bury it! Come on baby! Go go go! Go go go tires! Oh this is pretty steep. – [Man] We got it, awe, here we go! – [Carl] Yeah, gettin’ some traction! If you have to just snag a couple of those rocks on the side. – [Man] Now we’re fine. – [Carl] Yeah, we got it. – [Man] I wasn’t really
losing momentum through there. It slowed way down, but I wasn’t losing anymore momentum. – [Carl] Look at this terrain man! How cool is this? – [Man] This is the competition. – [Carl] Let’s pull up
along the top ridge here. And film these guys. Oh yeah, look at that! – [Man] Oh, that’s the
competition right there. – Dude, we should fly the drone off here, and fly down there and check it out. (revving) Cool. Shoot the gap man. Shoot the gap.
(laughing) We’re trying to get up
to the top of this hill so we can get a good
vantage point to watch some of these crazy rock crawlers come up through their obstacles, but they’re like down in
the trenches over there. I’m not sure where they’re at. (upbeat heavy metal music) Awe, we’re broke down in the desert! No, I’m just kiddin’. We’re just lettin’ the engine cool off while we were flyin’ the drone. But hey, that was pretty cool huh, seein’ those rock climbers
do their thing or whatever. It’d be fun if we had one of those rigs, but that’s okay, we’re havin’
a good time runnin’ around in, what are we callin’ this rig? – Master Blaster!
– Master Blaster! Who runs the boarder town? – [Man] I think it’s barter town. – Barter town.
– Barter town (laughs). – Master Blaster runs the barter town. You ain’t off-roadin’ unless you’re Beastie Boys off-roadin’. (upbeat hip-hop music) (laughing) Yeah! This is a pretty technical
spot to try and get up so we’re gonna see how
he does comin’ down. Doin’ good! Straight ahead. Straight ahead over the rock. Perfect. Who runs barter town? – Master Blaster!
– Master Blaster! Look at those machines up close! That’s crazy! Look at that thing. It looks awesome. Those tires are so gnarly. The jeep did really well out on the sand. What do you think? – Yeah, it didn’t really
have any problems. – No problems at all. We’re gonna try and retrace our steps, but take a little bit of a different path, and find a really awesome camp spot. We got some firewood, and we got all kinds of
cool stuff to go camping, and some food and everything. So, we’re gonna find
this really awesome spot by this cliff wall, and
there’s a creek and everything, and that’s where we’re gonna
be chillin’ out for the night. So, we’re back here in this
canyon where the waterfalls are, where the two waterfall drop
is where we were the other day. And we’re gonna take the same route out. We got a really cool camp
spot down the trail that way that we found that we’re gonna go to. But this time we’re gonna attempt it with the sway bar disconnected. – We’re disconnecting
the sway bar so the axle can fluctuate right and left. It’ll be a little bit smoother when we’re goin’ over the crazy stuff. – [Carl] All the big
crazy drops and stuff. Comin’ down for a really
cool river crossing. I had to get out and film it this time because last time I didn’t. (water trickling) Then he does the river crossing. – [Man] Keep going? – Yeah, go for it. Yeah! Alright, check out this
awesome spot that we found. We’re parked right there. I’m gonna be sleepin’ in the jeep, and then there’s this whole cliff face that we’re far enough away from. We set up a fire pit. The reason we moved it clear
out here away from the rocks is because you can see
where it’s all been falling off of the cliff face so we
don’t want any of it hitting us. That’s actually what we
built our fire pit out of is all the stuff that’s
fallen off of this edge. Then from where the fire
pit and the jeep is, just like right here is the creek. So, we got running water, the creek, we’re down in the canyon, and the trees, everything we could want. Even the scorpions to
crawl in our sleeping bags. Scorpions gotta keep warm too, so I guess if they wanna
snuggle up they can snuggle up. Check it out! So, our camp sight is right
over there where the jeep is at. Can you see that way over there? And we just got exploring
coming up the creek here, and look at what we found. This was just crawling across the sand. Here, I’ll get him to go to the right. There. See that? Look at that! – [Man] Oh, he’s mad. – [Carl] Oh, he’s angry.
(laughing) Look at that, it’s a legit, I’ve never seen a tarantula in the wild. – [Man] Should I hold him? – [Carl] Do you dare? What if he shoots his little hairs in you and makes you itch? – [Man] Is that a thing? – [Carl] They do, yeah.
(laughing) They do, I’m not joking, yeah, look. See his butt go up? And then the little hairs will shoot out, and they make you itch. – [Man] Huh. – [Carl] Don’t flick ’em on me now. (laughing) I will freak out and then
punch you in the face. Oh, he’s angry. Ahh! Don’t do that! Okay, let’s leave him alone. Ooo, he’s trying to make himself look big. He looks big enough. Have fun sleepin’ on
the cot tonight, dude. (laughing) Whoa, look at those little things down, comin’ out of his abdomen. There’s probably more, yeah, he probably eats all the little
frogs and stuff around here. That’s cool. I’m glad we came down here. We would’ve never seen it. Hey. Catch a tarantula!
– Ooo! (laughing) – [Carl] It was a pine
cone (laughs), gotcha. Man, that’s big! I mean, look at the size of my finger. How big that is. That’s crazy. This is a pretty cool area right here by our campsite with all this, with the creek and everything
runnin’ through here. That’s awesome. Well, we are all done
camping as far as I know. (laughs) On our adventure, and we decided to get up this
morning, get things ready, and we’re doing the
Kanarraville Falls hike back in the Red Rock Canyon. It’s gonna be awesome. And this is the very first
of multiple creek crossings. As you can see, he hasn’t
done this hike before. He doesn’t realize that the
whole thing is gonna be this so you might as well get over it. (laughing) This hike is definitely one of the most gorgeous ones that I’ve ever been on, and this time all of
the leaves are changing so it’s really beautiful. But it all begins here. Last time we came everybody
was scrambling over the rocks to try and stay out of the creek, but then on the way back
everybody just trudges right through it and accepts the fact that it’s just way faster to
just cut right through the way nature takes you. So, I think this time I’m just
gonna go right up the middle. Cold enough for ya? Yeah, it’s pretty brisk. Your feet get nice and numb don’t they. I need to figure out
some sort of a backpack that I can carry my drone in, or get that new GoPro one
where the wings fold back. Because it would be way cool
to be able to fly the drone up like around all this and
back into the canyon. Wouldn’t that be awesome? But I didn’t wanna carry it in my hand just in the styrofoam case
for four hours right now. It’s such a scenic hike. It just gets better and better the further back in we get
too, it’s gonna be awesome. I’m startin’ to get into some
Indiana Jones stuff here. What’s up? Holy crap! Look at that bug! Alright, I’m gonna pause
the vlog right here for just one second
because there’s something that we did not realize at this particular moment during the hike. Those black and yellow wasps
that we encounter in the canyon right here are actually
called tarantula hawks. And little did we know that they eat tarantula spiders for their food, and they have the third most
painful sting in the world as far as the insect kingdom goes. So, we had no idea that
we were encountering one of the most painful
stinging insects in the world as they were flying right around our head. So, just keep that in mind
while you watch us walking right past them and then flying around us, like a bunch of idiots. Oh, dude, he’s angry. – [Man] Yeah, it’s like a huge wasp thing. – [Carl] Look normal wasps. Whoa! He’s flyin’!
(laughing) – [Man] Nope, nope! – [Carl] Whoa! Nope!
(laughing) Let’s move out! Alright.
(laughing) Here we go. Oh, there’s another one! Look, I’ll zoom in on him. – [Man] That one’s not quite as big. – [Carl] Oh, jeez! He’s big enough to block
the trail from me right now. Man, it’s beautiful back up in here. Onward! Somethin’ or other funny punchline. Go! It would’ve been way
awesome to bring the drone. I’ve gotta sort that out, and then next year we’ll
figure out a backpack, and a drone to carry it up here. From here on in the rest of the hike is just like in the thick
canyon walls like this. It’s kind of sparse right here, and yeah, but it just gets awesome. When we get back in
and the canyon narrows, then it’s just nothin’
but cliff and cliff, and the creek right up the middle. It’s really cool. Makes you feel like one of the old ancient Pueblo or Anastazi, Anasazi
crawling around back in here. Makes me wanna build a
little clay fortress. – [Man] Okay, here we go. Are you ready? – [Carl] You gonna go up it? – This is either gonna be
really funny or really bad. – [Carl] It’s really deep. Are you gonna go spider man? – [Man] I don’t know. ♫ Spider Man Spider Man ♫ Gonna make regrets as fast as he can – [Carl] Don’t lose your glasses. ♫ Na-na-nah na-na-nah Awe! Be careful! – [Man] Like one, two, three. – [Carl] That’s like
super deep down below. – [Man] It’s gettin’ wider! – [Carl] I know. Use your corn muscles! (laughing) Oh, slippery rock! – [Man] I know! I don’t know what to do now. – [Carl] Can you get your left foot up in that hole where the leaves are? – [Man] Maybe. – [Carl] There you go! Yeah! That was a pretty awesome– – It was almost too wide right there! – [Carl] (laughs) It widened out. – I had to go on my fingers there! (laughing) – Okay, now it’s my turn to go do, no. Not gonna happen. Alright, here we go. This is the beginning
of the actual canyon. And now there’s nowhere
to get out of the water, you just have to let your
feet go numb and suck it up. Oh yeah! You cheater, you dirty rotten! – [Man] So have you.
(laughing) – If you ever get the
chance to come down here to Kanarraville in Southern
Utah definitely take it, and come down here and do
the Kanarraville Falls hike. I mean… Really? This is just freakin’ amazing. Just hiking back through here, you gotta come and do it, it’s so cool. Ooo! Hello! Whoo-hoo!
(laughing) Oh gosh! There’s a desert samsquinch! (laughing) Here’s the waterfall, the first one. Hey, you guys! (laughing) It’s totally like something
out of the goonies! Isn’t that awesome! Whoo! You made it! Very cool. Alright guys, well that’s
enough talkin’ for now. I have to go up this ladder thing next, so you guys have to go
back in the backpack for this part, sorry. Here we go. We made it up the lower falls. Here’s the second little set. We get to scamper up. Yeah. Come out into places like this, and it makes feel and realize
how small you actually are. Simba, you are the new Lion King! (laughing) Alright! We made it up
these other falls here. A little bit of a scramble, and took some fun pictures, but just a little bit
farther up here, up this way, is where I cracked my tailbone. I think let’s go there next. Whoo, we made it all the way up here. It’s so gorgeous. This is the upper falls. Right here, this is where, last time we were up here earlier, where I slid down the slide here, and cracked the tip of my tail bone. We were up here with the Tannerites, and Nature for Kids net
and did this whole hike, and that was not a fun walk out with the tip of my tailbone all cracked. I couldn’t really feel it too bad, but once we got in the car, no fun. It makes you look tiny, man. It’s so beautiful up here, oh my gosh. Unbelievably cool. It’s really a shame. I almost should have
brought the GoPro because there’s just no way to capture
it all with this camera. Everywhere you look is just
unbelievably beautiful up here. That slide right there. That’s where I cracked my tailbone. – [Man] Oh really? – [Carl] Yeah, right
here I slid down that, and hit a rock at the bottom. (laughing)
A long hike out. Oh jeez. Are you really gonna go? – Yeah, why not? – [Carl] Awe! Yeah (laughing). Whoops!
(laughing) Dude, that’s awesome though! What happened? You lose your… – Where’s my glasses go? I gotta find ’em. – [Carl] Oh no! You lost your glasses? – Once the sand all clears, I’ll be able to see ’em.
(laughing) It’s gonna be so cold walkin’ back. – [Carl] Oh yeah. – Oh, why did I do that? – [Carl] Because you’re
cool and it was funny. – Yeah, I tried to jump at the end, but my feet just went out from under me. (laughing) – [Carl] You find ’em? – [Man] Yeah. – [Carl] Yeah!
(laughing) Found your glasses! – Oh, I’m so cold right now.
(laughing) – [Carl] We need to go
up and bask in the sun, dry off for a minute somewhere. – I’ll be fine.
(laughing) – Well, we made it back from the hike, and we’re on the way home now. Decided to see the wife and kids, and get back together with everybody, and back into the routine. (crying) I don’t want a routine anymore. Hey, thanks for watchin’. Click the “i” card to see more videos if you wanna see our last
