Apparently, I’m at semi-annual posts now. Sigh.
The weekend after labor day, Dad and Punkin and Kimmie (who were my Death Valley friends too!) and I did a day trip to hike up the Virgin River to the Zion Narrows. It was awesome. And my dad is amazing.
Here’s a couple of movies. Great trip – a mile from the shuttle stop on paved path, then about 1 more mile, hiking mostly along and in the Virgin River up to “Wall Street.”
I recommend this – highly. Rent some gear – Tevas will not save your toes or protect you from rolled ankles. There are multiple outfitters in Springdale that will rent you neoprene socks and shoes (with toe protection – CRITICAL) and walking stick for less than 25$ for the day. (Neoprene socks are also highly recommended – the water is at best 60 degrees F).
