You’d think that after I broke myself rimming the Grand Canyon in less than 24 hours, I’d be done for a while, right? Nope, immediately I jumped in the jeep and headed to Zion National Park. My friend Travis had told me about a hike there I needed to do called Angel’s landing, so that was next on my list of trails to crush.
I got to Zion late at night though and so slept in the jeep, when I awoke the next morning and headed to the Angels landing trailhead, they told me that it was going to be closed for maintenance today. I was like… whattttt… boom. Super devastated.
Well the maintainers were waiting for the rest of the crew to show at the trailhead, so I continued walking on. and did the most rapid descent ever possible of Angels landing. I was flying up the rungs and chains.
Probably not the safest, and I didn’t get to enjoy being at the top for more than a few minutes to catch my breath, but I hadn’t come all this way for nothing.
After I descend from heaven… aka Angels Landing, I drove around Zion a bit more.
There is a lot of trails to explore, and the Narrows have been on my never-ending bucket list for a while. The Narrows is a trail where for a 3.6 mile section you hike up the Virgin River through Zion Canyon. So until we meet again Zion…
