My final stop on my Utah trip was the truly spectacular Zion NP I definitely saved the best to last!! We entered the park ia the back route just before sunset so had to drive the length of the park via the scenic highway to get to the only town on the other side of the park. The drive was spectacular and my immediate thought was how like Yosemite NP it was. Albeit with pink and white rocks and a desert setting but the valley was just as spectacular.
Probably the two most famous hikes in Zion are the Narrows hike southern Utah’s premier hike in Zion National Park. For 16 miles (26 kilometers), the canyon winds through the crimson sandstone, in some spots stretching 2,000 feet (610 meters) high and narrowing to 20 feet (6 meters) we went in the flood season so in some place it required wading through chest high water. I can honestly say it was one of the most spectacular hikes day hikes I have ever done
Possibly even more famous is Angels Landing is one of the world's most renowned hikes, and is an unforgettable short adventure hike
worthy of all bucket lists. The views of Zion Canyon's 270 million-year-old rock layers the views from the top are truly spectacular!!
The one down side to Zion was its busy, and I mean really busy. After being the only people to camp at Monument Valley there wasn’t a space at Zion. And this was in the off season.
