Noah speaks with Rich Carlson, a Guide with Wilderness Adventures, about the sport of Canyoneering, or Canyoning as it's known in Europe. The sport involves climbing, hiking, and swimming through slot canyons, and often rappelling or sliding down waterfalls. At least 19 people died yesterday in a flash flood, while canyoning in Interlaken, Switzerland.
