Zion
Posted by Gordon Smith

Yesterday we took a semi-spontaneous trip to southern Utah to hike The Narrows in Zion National Park. On a day that exceeded 100 degrees, we stayed cool in the shadows of the canyons carved by the Virgin River ...

I wore a Wisconsin Badgers shirt, and several families from Madison hailed us, but it seemed like most of the people in The Narrows were from Europe. We heard lots of Italian and French being spoken, as well as a few British accents. Some of the hikers were walking the river in bare feet, which looked very painful, as the riverbed is filled with large stones. Of course, the stones are mostly smooth, having been worn by the river, so the main risk is twisted ankles.

Unfortunately, I had failed to charge the battery in my camera, and it petered out before we got to the best parts of the hike. Never fear, YouTube to the rescue ...
