October 2016 - Taylor Creek Trail/Double Arch Alcove
Zion National Park - South Entrance
September 2018 Labor Day weekend at Zion? Yes!
January was a wonderful time to visit Zion! The weather was crisp but sunny, and it felt like we had the park to ourselves. Our hikes included Emerald Pools (upper and lower), Weeping Rock Trail, Riverside Walk, and Sand Bench Trail. We were surprised to stumble upon a group of wild turkeys and four bucks on the Sand Bench trail! So often, the park is crowded, and it's hard to spot wildlife. The whole experience was so refreshing and peaceful.
Summer 1985 This was our first camping trip together at ages 19 and 21. We started at the Grand Canyon (South Rim) and then camped at Zion. We had an inflatable raft that we walked up the Virgin River and rode down to our campsite.
