Comments about your Utah Elopement at Red Rock
Your Utah elopement at Red Rock is carried out under all weather conditions, even if it rains.
If the weather conditions make it dangerous to proceed with parts of the experience, the itinerary might be adjusted
This is just a sample itinerary that we can adjust or swap depending on your needs, fitness, and how things work. The schedule is very flexible and can be extended. I conduct adventure sessions in any weather, but may have to visit alternative (but still epic) locations should it be unsafe to proceed (e.g. flash flood warnings).
