The Narrows @ Zion

The Narrows is a hiking trail in Zion National Park. But is in no way your average walking trail! Hiking in the Narrows, you walk IN the river, along the river. It’s quite a strenuous 9.5 mile round trip hike, which takes 8 hours on average. We started from the bottom, at the Temple of Sinawava, along a nicely paved road along the river. Then it was time to step in 🙂 And walk. And walk. And then walk some more.

Stop on every other step to gasp in awe at the surrounding mesmerizing scenery.

Until the time has run out…

I only wish the day could be as long as I need it to get enough of this magical place!

  1. WONDERFUL, Jouena ! – quite stunning ! Eight hours of this shows how fit you guys are ! – did you swim, too ? I think I espied someone in her bathers … I see that you take Route 15 from Las Vegas and drive NE, and there you are: here’s hoping there might be some more of these fabulous shots from you …

    1. Unfortunately, we started late and could not make it to the end before dark, we walked for only about 4 hours. We did not swim either – the water is shallow, actually, coming up to my bottom only in couple places. Rest assured – more photos coming of stunning scenery coming!
