Exploring Zion: The Narrows & Canyon Overlook

10/01/2015

What. A. Magnificent. Place.

This is all I have to say about Zion. This is the 3rd National Park I have visited here in the United States, and by far my favorite. I wish we had more time to keep exploring, but all we had was a 3-day holiday weekend. Not the best time to go, I’d say. It was kinda packed, and reserving a campsite was way too impossible. (We ended up staying at a friend’s place in Las Vegas, driving to and from Zion. Talk about dedication!)

On our first day we did The Narrows, bottom-up hike. It was my first ever canyon hike, so I was very excited! Here’s me and the hubby in one of the horseshoe bends of the Narrows.

I’m so glad we pushed through with it, even if the sun was already setting, because that place was so beautiful and so breathtaking! A great and easy trail, with a big reward in the end!
