Zion National Park – Cliffs and Canyons

9 03 2015

I went for a road trip to see a few National Parks and other cool stuff in the Southwestern US. Here is the "Best of Zion"

1. OK – so this one is a cheat. We didn’t get to Zion in time for Sunset but this mountain just lit right up for us

The Never-Ending Escapade

Zion is one of the most incredible places I’ve ever been. The photos don’t even do it justice although they are absolutely stunning too!

I found it to be quite imposing. The sheer walls dwarfed you so often. I look forward to going back and discovering the Narrows and the Subway as well as doing some actual hiking within the park. I think then I will get to see more of the real beauty within!

The Narrows and Angels Landing are some of my favorite hikes of all time. It’s absolutely insane how dwarfed you feel next to all of those things. Enjoy and stay safe!

Cool! Thanks for the tips. I don’t know when I’ll get back but I will… I’m pretty sure of that.
