A Payson father and his sons were rescued Saturday after getting stuck at a Garfield County canyon.
Jason Knight, 35, and his 11- and 8-year-old sons entered Sandthrax Canyon about midway between Canyonlands and Capitol Reef national parks on Wednesday. That day, the father became trapped 350 feet down between the tight canyon walls, and told the boys to stay where they were on a ledge at the top of the canyon to prevent further incident, according to a Wayne County news release. Wayne County helped out in the rescue.
The boys had only a small amount of water and a granola bar between them. The water lasted only a day.
