For the first time in our guide's experience, access to The Wave was completely impassable. Buckskin Gulch, normally a dry streambed in the summer, maybe a foot of water during the seasonal monsoons, was a raging, swirling, impassble river on both of our attempts. He called all his fellow guides, and they reported the southern approach (a 2.5 hour drive) was just as bad. The Toadstools was a nice little hike between attempts, but oh-so-many tears were shed as we found The Wave was impassable, even to an experienced guide with a lifted Jeep and knobby tires. ;_;
We even gave it a second attempt an hour later, hoping the water levels would recede, to no avail.
Plan B was to head to Zion early, only to find the same rain had closed The Narrows due to high water levels-- peaked at 1600+ cubic feet per second! Max safe for hiking is 150cfs, and typical late summer levels are usually well under 100cfs. Eeeek.
OTOH, Angels Landing is a superb hike as always, even if the Instagrammers want to take 10,000 photos on the way. The final approach via the chains is always fun, and dinner at Zion Pizza and Noodle was well-earned, even if the salad was meh and the pizza, while tasty, was ultimately forgettable.
