    GARFIELD COUNTY, Utah -- The bodies of a California couple who drowned inside a slot canyon during a flash flood were recovered Thursday morning by a Utah Highway Patrol helicopter.

    Kathy Chapple and her husband, Gordon Chapple, from Walnut Creek, Calif., were hiking with six others at the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument when a flash flood hit the Egypt Trailhead area at about 2:30 p.m., said the Garfield County Sheriff's Office.
