There’s no seeing the real Zion Canyon without getting away from the rest areas and into the wilderness. We didn’t exactly get into the wilderness, but hiking along the park trails earned us a nice view of the park’s wonders.
You meet other hikers going both ways along the trails.
There’s not much in the park that doesn’t dwarf the people.
Stay on the trail, everything is all right. Step off, and it’s hundreds of feet down.
Come time to wade in the water, and hikers shuck off their shoes. It makes an interesting collection.
The wonders of modern technology. That’s the camera remote control in my right hand, taking selfies the old fashion way.
Finding little else to occupy my time, I posed with a fallen log. That’s the remote control in my left hand.
A lot of the time the trail is up, up and up. Other times it’s down, down.
It really is a jungle here in the canyon.
What to do when meeting another hiker on a narrow ledge. Stand by and let them pass.
Remote control to the rescue again. We are looking at one of the smaller big rocks in the park.
Sometimes Barbara had to stop to let me catch up. Or to take a photo.
Sometimes the trail goes through some tight places.
