Following my annual visit to Las Vegas, I made the three hour drive over the Zion National Park in south-western Utah. As it turned out, it was a great time to be there – not many visitors, beautiful fall colors, great weather. On the first full day I climbed up about 1400 ft from the canyon floor to the top of Angel’s Landing.
Above the main canyon is behind me. In the next shot I’m looking back the other direction, up toward the ‘Narrows’ of the Virgin River.
Then the next day I rented some gear and hiked up The Narrows, where at times the rock walls tower over 1000 feet on each side, and the river is not more than about 20 feet wide.
