Zion Narrows

Pops and I did an iconic hike this summer: the Zion Narrows from Chamberlain's Ranch to the Temple of Sinawava.

The trail is the Virgin River -- and thousands and thousands of moss-covered rocks the size and shape of bowling balls.

After a couple of miles, the river starts carving deeper and deeper into the Narrows Canyon, and the majority of the hike is spent winding down a canyon with 2,000-foot walls towering 20-30 feet apart.

Digging Deeper

It was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.  Every view was picture worthy.  If I were to do it again, I would do a multi-day trip and make use of the campgrounds half-way down the canyon.  There's just too much exploring to do to cram it into one day.

Beautiful Zion
