Hiking Zion National Park
Whether you are an advanced hiker or someone who prefers a short walk, Zion National Park has several options for visitors exploring Utah’s first national park. We visited over Memorial Day weekend, which is the busiest weekend for the park, according to rangers. At times it felt more like Walt Disney World and not an encounter with nature, but it was easy to lose the large crowds and find solitude on the longer trails.

Canyon Trip
Flew from Charlotte NC to Dallas Texas.
Traveled from Dallas Texas by rental car to Utah where we visited, Las Vegas, Zion Natural Park, Brice Canyon and Grand Canyon Arizona where we then drove back to Dallas to catch our flight back to Charlotte and then drove home to Lynchburg, VA.
Could have spent 5 days in each place, next time will do so! Was a wonderful adventure.

Climbing up Angel's Landing
Zion National Park is a beautiful national park, so big you'd need more than a month's time to see everything. We'd heard about Angel's Landing - which if you don't know, is about 5 miles in total, but once you get towards the top, there's a cliff you climb up where all you have is a chain. We started this hike knowing only what we'd seen in pictures and the description, with the word "switchback." We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. We now know what a switchback is, and I'd have to say it's exhausting. This might have been one of the harder hikes for me but this view wasn't amazing. The reason I love this picture is because I know how hard it was to get there.
