Here is the last post from our family vacation. This day at Zion was the other highlight of the trip for me. First off Zion National Park was overhelmingly beautiful and majestic is the word that comes to my head when I think about it. This was definitely the mightiest of the “Mighty Five” parks. We did a hike called The Narrows. It was an experience I will never forget. In the morning we outfitted ourselves with wetsuits, water socks, water shoes and walking sticks. We rented from the good guys at Zion Mountain School that made sure we had everything we needed for this hike. We hiked through the Virgin river into the Wall Street slot canyon. It was like no other hike or anything I’ve done before. This hike can last 14 hours, but we only made it 4 hours.
We were in the water a good part of this hike and were thankful for our wetsuits and water shoes. My walking stick also saved me several times.
