The Narrows

Zion Narrows
 I told you about our adventures hiking the Narrows in Zion National Park in my "Lots of things happening" post. I thought I would share a few of the photos from our two day hike.  

Zion Narrows

If you ever get a chance to hike the Narrows it is an amazing look at mother nature in all of her glory. The light in the Narrows at various times of the year and day are simply breathtaking! Warning! Before you hike the Narrows check the local weather and with the "Outfitters" in the town of Springdale for flash flood warnings, flow rate, water temps and level. Unfortunately fatalities occur in flash floods, such as the one in late September of this year. Please be safe! Also wear some decent hiking boots or even tennis shoes. I see so many people hiking the Narrows in flip flops. The rocks are extremely slippery and the water current can be quite quick. It's pretty easy to loose your footing. Use a hiking stick! It really hurts to hit the rocks and water face first. Ask me, I did it, ouch!!!

I have hiked the Narrows several times and this shot has eluded me every time until last month. I guess patience and persistence pays off!
