I’m kind of obsessed with today’s photo journal from Zion National Park. Jill and I felt like we were on set at Jurassic Park when we arrived. The grandeur and beauty of this place was truly amazing! We drove about 4 and a half hours from Salt Lake City to Zion. We had so much fun just driving there, but our hiking experience will forever be memorable. We have both hiked before, but we decided to try the strenuous Angels Landing Trail. Oh boy, we were definitely in for a treat. The entire hike took us about four hours, but the views were worth the time. We kept hiking and hiking and finally we made it to the top. The craziness about this hike was that once we thought we were at the top, we had to use a metal chain with two way traffic to go up even higher right at the ledge of the boulders. This definitely tested my fear of heights. I still get a bit shaky thinking about it.. Anyway, the way down was a lot better because we had done something we both didn’t know we could do and it felt really great!
After grabbing a bite to eat in town, it was my turn to drive us towards Bryce Canyon for the night because the next day we were going to explore there. Let me tell you this, I think I had more fear driving through the winding roads through the mountains and tunnels more than the actual climb. That was also an experience that I would never forget. I highly recommend if you get a chance to visit this National Park. Bryce photo journal is up next.
Have a wonderful weekend!
