Zion's Narrows, 2

Continuing our very satisfying hikes up The Narrows, Zion National Park's upper Virgin River Canyon...
The House
















Shots looking up are really difficult...but here you're looking up
some hundreds of feet, through a 10-20 foot slit in the canyon
ceiling


















And here we are at a side canyon that is a well-
known landmark on the hike; we'd just finished
visiting with a guided party that had stopped
for mimosas on the way and shared them and
some stories with us...nice folks on the trail
























And now we are deep in The Narrows




















And really narrow




















Pausing for the Moment




















Thus




















Wall Street, so-called




















Looking up again
















Well beyond Wall Street now




















And still quite narrow




















Proceeding on
















Miles of incredible erosion features, high and low
















And the stream responsible
















Ever onward




















Another floor to ceiling shot that mostly worked




















20 feet above the creek, caves scoured out aeons
ago with grapefruit- and watermelon-sized rocks
left behind






















Vicki and more Narrows




















On the return
















Petty incredible place...we'll be back

That is incredible. Glad you could rent some warm and waterproof clothes. Did you worry about flash floods going through there?
