Zion’s Narrows

Zion'sNarrowsThe Narrows at Zion National Park in Utah. This is a 16 mile long trail that is hiked by wadding through the Virgin River for the majority of the 16 miles. It is a slot canyon where the walls rise more than 1000 feet on either side and at its narrowest point is only about 15′ wide. Needless to say, this is an amazing trail to hike. This particular image is one of my favorites from our trip. This image actually hangs over my fireplace. It was taken late on the second day of our hike. The way the light funnels into the canyon is breathtaking. If you want to do the full 16 miles you will need to get a permit, usually about 3 months in advance of your trip. Otherwise, you can do a day excursion from the “bottom up” as the park likes to call it. Either way, this is a great experience. I suggest using hiking poles. It is easy to lose your footing and twist or break an ankle.
