Zion National Park
|We went to Zion National Park twice during our St George trip.|
The first day was a bit a chilly.
We drove through the tunnel then headed back to catch the tram up the canyon.
We stopped at the Partriachs then hiked up to Weeping Rock.
Next we walked on the River Trail that begins the hike into The Narrows.
As we walked on the trail it began to lightly rain on us and then it started snowing.
It was cool to watch the snow falling down the narrow canyon.
I made several attempts to try to capture the scene but it just does not do it any justice.
There were only a few brave souls that were heading up the river bed to pursue The Narrows.
Most sane people, like ourselves, were turning their soaked, cold selves back to the beginning once the paved path ended.
The following day we met up with Tara who was ending her Utah trip.
She had stopped in Arches and Canyonlands the day before and then was caught is a bad snow storm on her way to Cedar City.
We chose the Emerald Pools hike for the days adventure.
I think this was the second or third time Tara has ever voluntarily hiked.
She is opposed to any nature walking with any incline of any sort.
The day before she had hiked to Delicate Arch and now, the very next day, she was hiking again.
I pretty sure she was actually enjoying it!
Maybe it was the camera in her hands and prospect of something more tangible than just being able to say 'I went on a hike, I saw some nature, I got sweaty, and now I'm tired'!
There is hope for our Tara!
