Emerald Pools – isn’t that a wonderful name?! Enough to set me going to check out the trail! So, Emerald Pools is about a 4 hour round trip trail combining several trails of easy to moderate difficulty. It is wonderful hike in the jungle (well, almost ;)) to a waterfall and up along a cascade of pools created by mountain springs. The climb is not strenuous at all, but must pleasantly refreshing, most unexpectedly green and all in all – most enjoyable.
This is how Zion salutes the Sun:
This is the Virgin River, the major force that is still sculpting the face of Zion Canyon today:
There, behind the great green, is the Lower Pool, with hardly visible waterfall:
This is the Middle Pool – the panorama from here is the most breathtaking! See the cliff edge? Trust me, it’s TOO far down. This is where the water falls to the Lower Pool in that lovely waterfall
This is the Upper Pool, at least that’s what we gathered as no matter how much higher we climbed, there was no trace of any other pool. This is a tiny pool hidden in rocks.
A magical place!
I could not get away without the view from the top – enjoy!
Hi, I am Elena, a Traveler who has found her Home.
I was born'n'raised in Odessa, on the Black Sea, and love my city passionately. When I was little, I lived in Singapore for 4 years - that is where my life-long love affair with the English language began. Back in Odessa, I was blessed to marry a Moroccan man and fell deeply in love with Morocco as a country, their culture, heritage and cuisine! We moved to the United States in 2011. It was the Relocation of the Lifetime, trust me. Now I am inviting you to share the experience and - maybe, who knows? - you will contract a sparkle of inspiration to transform your own life!
