We took the shuttle through Zion National Park early in the morning to hike the Narrows before Disneyland-like crowds descended upon the famed Utah canyon. The route required wading through waste-deep water and scrambling over submerged and exposed rocks (waterproof shoes with good tread and a walking stick come in handy). The gorge stretches for miles, so the hike is more about admiring the marbleized canyon walls than reaching an end destination. Here, we stopped to look around and realized our place in nature.

Angels Landing Hike
this hike is the perfect morning trek...not too long or strenuous (around 5 miles) but climbing up the steep trail with railings (pictured behind me) is both exhilarating and fun! a must-do in zion. incredible views of the valley from the top.
