nice hike, gotta come back and do the wall though.
Great vistas, but the trail was too crowded.
Was lot easier than some people had warned. It was hot day in July and I just wanted to out. Too many people on the trail. But it was spectacular at the end. I love the eolian environment.
Beat the crowds too!
My first ever trip to Zion. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed this hike. Saw a rattlesnake on the way up.
Enjoyed the hike, although it was pretty crowded up there. Great views all the way.
Along with several friends, I hiked to the top during a rare, howling snowstorm. Great times.
I don't remeber what year I did it, but it was fun. I did it with one of those annoying boy scout groups that are always on the popular climbs :)
Helped a buddy drive from Sacramento, CA to St. Louis, MO over the weekend. We arrived at Zion at 9 in the morning after driving all night (w/ a brief stop in Vegas). We had about 4 hours to spare before getting back on the road, so we chose Angels Landing as our hiking venue. Although it wasn't terribly difficult, there were definently challenging parts. Nothing prepared us for the amazing view atop this huge rock. The weather was perfect, and the surroundings amazing. Wish we could have spent another day or two there. After Angels landing, we decided to take the short jaunt to the Emerald pools. This was a bit more disappointing, more like Emerald puddles, but this didn't detract from the incredible "time out" we had for several hours in the Fall.
Really easy, but nice with the fam. Awesome exposure at the top. Super hot day, the narrows from orderville is also a must do especially in the summer heat.
Spectacular exposure! Some parts make you almost want to have a rope handy at times. I particularly enjoyed the "sidewalk" section with the railing.
Several times over the years. Zion can be a zoo, but it's absolutely worth putting up with now and then.
First time to Zion. Did this hike with my wife, who was two months pregnant. Breathtaking hike!
I got up early to beat the crowds and it workes. I had the summit all to myself for sunrise. I warmed up, headed down and didn't see another person until Scout's Lookout.
I am not ashamed to say that I scooted on my butt like a scared little girl, or for the feminists like a scared little boy.
Excellent hike! Head back up the other trail from Scout's Lookout. It is some of the most beautiful scenery in Zion, and all the tourists flock to the landing. This area is relatively unused.
zion is an awesome place. watch out for the hungry chipmunks on top, they're experienced climbers yu know!
Everyone should do this. Makes me wish that Independence monument on the Colorado Monument still had its Pipes. That would be a true classic. FU mrmt prx. YOu know who u r. Respect for the "antiquities act" applied here, even in the early eighties or when ever you decided to ruin it.
This is a favorite fall getaway. I cannot believe more people do not fall off this ribbon of rock.
What a fun hike. Chains were a cool finish and the summit was great and the views were worth all the switch backs. Great part of the SW.
Climbed with Maria on our NP tour back in 1999. This was not a class 3 route! Class 2 with consequences would be a better approximation; all the exposed areas are either cabled or chained... at least back in 1999.
Definitely some zen moments cruising the upper sections...
