Angels Landing   1 comment

Hiking Angels Landing to Observation Point is one of the 2 iconic hikes in Zion National Park (The other being The Narrows). Angels Landing is not for the faint of heart, though, as the narrow trail has a steep drop off for much of it's climb. Tweeted by the US Department of the Interior, 3/29/16.

Rain Puddles Are Beautiful   Leave a comment

Zion National Park is known for great hiking and incredible views. Gazing up at massive sandstone cliffs of cream, pink and red that soar into a brilliant blue sky, sometimes it’s hard for visitors to stay on the trails. Everywhere you look, there’s something beautiful to see and as the light and weather changes, so does the scenery. On a day after a desert rain storm left puddles in the park’s lower areas, Ian Barin used the opportunity and some ingenuity to capture this amazing shot. Photo courtesy of Ian Barin.

The Subway In Color   1 comment

One of the most popular backcountry hikes in Zion National Park, The Subway is not to be missed. This unique slot canyon was sculpted by the Left Fork of North Creek, and moving water chisels the rock floor, leaving behind shallow potholes. This amazing photo by Tiffany Nguyen captures the size and scale of The Subway. To explore The Subway, visitors must get permits, and it’s subjected to daily limits.
