Zion National Park

Friday Flashback
National Park Series #7
In 1990, we picked another hot week to go camping! Consequently we went through a lot of drinks, and the kids favorite activity was wading in the creek, but we also had a fun time hiking and exploring Zion National Park. The highlight of the trip (at least for Wayne - I stayed in camp with the two youngest) was hiking Angel's Landing.

If you google it, I'm sure you can find more spectacular pictures of Angel's Landing. However, Wayne loved the hike. Weston and David didn't remember much about it, so they made sure to hike it again when they were in college. A few years ago, Wayne and I hiked Huayna Picchu, (the mountain in back of Machu Picchu), and at the top we chatted with someone who said that was the second most fantastic hike he'd ever been on. Wayne replied, "The first was Angel's Landing in Zion, wasn't it?" The guy was amazed that Wayne guessed correctly. So, if you get a chance, give this awesome trail a try!
