Zion National Park

IMG_1351Our 4 days at Watchman Campground in Zion National Park have flown by.  We had a site right on the Virgin River which was fortunate since the temps have risen sharply since we’ve been here and it gets to 102 F during the day.   The Virgin is shallow, fast flowing, in the 60’s and is fun to float down during the heat of the day.

Sunrise hits these peaks first

IMG_1353We’ve spent the majority of our time hiking in the early morning or late evening,  although we were dead in the water one day with Jeep issues.  Poor thing, it finally got worn out and thankfully it did it on a paved road close to a town.  A good Samaritan came by (another Jeep owner of course) and took Leonard back to the RV, so we could come out and tow the Jeep back home.   We got the necessary parts the next morning, which Leonard was able to repair himself and we’re off and running again.   Leonard says “I guess all that paying it forward stuff really works”.  It has for us.  We’ve been so fortunate.

Leonard did the famous Angel’s Landing hike yesterday.  There was no way I could do that so I went out and took photos.   It looks awesome for those of you so inclined.

The last .6 mile of the Angels Landing Hike involves walking across this peak

  1. Angel’s Landing just as I remember it, but with, perhaps, alittle more greenery…

    Another fantastic set of photo’s there!!! I zoomed in on the one picture of the people going up the last .6 miles and the girl with the tank top (with the water bottle stuffed in the back of her shorts) does not have proper hiking boots for that shit!!!
