"I love to come here to get away from... Away."Karen Reynolds in "Wolves"

The Canyon is an Arizonan canyon in Life is Strange 2. It appears in Episode 5, where Sean and Daniel Diaz visit the area for a sleepover and later return with their mother, Karen Reynolds.


  • Scorpions - As Sean packs the sleeping bags, Daniel catches a scorpion crawling up to him and begins suspending it in midair with his powers.
  • Coyotes - If Sean looks at their flashlight, he notes that it was useful for scaring the coyotes away.
  • Lizards - While travelling back down in the morning, Daniel can spot a baby lizard before it runs off.
  • Eagles - While travelling back down in the morning, Daniel hears an eagle's caw, which Sean identifies for him.

Episode Five - "Wolves"

The episode opens with Sean and Daniel waking up from having slept over at the canyon at the suggestion of their mother, Karen. After howling at the canyon, the brothers discuss the events at Haven Point with Lisbeth Fischer before packing up their items, with Daniel helping retrieve some items with his powers. As Sean rolls up the sleeping bags, Daniel begins suspending a scorpion in mid-air, and Sean can choose to reprimand him. As they walk down the canyon path, they are stopped by a pile of rocks, which Daniel blasts out of the way before they continue onward.

That night, Karen takes Sean and Daniel back to the same cliff, where she reveals that she had learned while shopping that the FBI is currently tracking them down in the region. She brings out a stack of paper lanterns she had intended to use for the 4th of July, and Sean lights them before the three release them. After Daniel uses his powers to make the lanterns rotate around the three, he releases them into the sky, two of them floating ahead of the third.
