Fun and Classy  Sucess!

It was a good time. I especially enjoyed the panic of all the people who had never hiked or climbed at all ;)

I hope to return to Zion's soon.

part of the best road trip ever  Sucess!

started up at 6am, back by 9. loved the last stretch to the summit. got to hike in nice cool weather until the sun popped over the higher peaks when we reached the summit (instant 40 deg change). Did emerald pools the day before and the narrows the next. great time in Zion

First Trip to Zion  Sucess!

Did Angels Landing via the trail is 2 hours 50 minutes round trip. I think 2 hours 15 minutes would be a good time for me if I pushed it. Really great views. Did the class 3 sections without touching the chains. More fun that way I think. Part of a 7 day trip to Zion and Bryce with my wife to get out of the Seattle rain.

Age 18 Months  Sucess!

Went to the summit with Daddy, Mommy, Grandma, and Grandpa. My first class-3 route, at age 18 months. Daddy carried me, of course. But I did walk on the lower parts of the trail, near the Virgin River.
Daddy and I both love class-3 slickrock sandstone. I wasn't afraid at all on the climb, even while looking down 1500 feet to the valley floor below. I was asleep for the final stretch to the summit. Is it normal to sleep there?

Cartwheels in my belly  Sucess!

I was 6 months pregnant with our boy when I climbed Angel's Landing. I think my son 'enjoyed' the view as I felt him doing cartwheels in my belly when we reached the summit. A reall cool day hike - very rewarding views!

Intro to Zion Peaks  Sucess!

It had rained ALL DAY the day before and because of the damp rock, thick fog, uncertain weather, and our total lack of experience on sandstone we chose to climb this popular peak before attempting anything more difficult. Started before dawn and had the whole trail/summit to ourselves until the way down. Unfortunately the top was in the clouds and views were almost non-existant.

Intro  Sucess!

Took my 7 year old son up on a beautiful Fall day. He absolutely loved the steep and exposed slick rock and received quite a greeting at the top from other hikers. A nice lady at the top had berries and chocolate on a silver platter!

worth it, despite the crowds

i hiked up early in the morning, before the crowds got too out of hand--it is unbelievable how many people cram into this trail! it is, however, completely worth it--the hike is short, sweet, and the views looking out from the peak are phenomenal. if you are planning a trip, be sure to take the earliest shuttle possible if you value solitude.

Tourist Route  Sucess!

IMHO the most spectacular tourist trail in the park system. I was with a lady from Texas who had never been on a mountain before. I coaxed her up each section and she made the summit. Outwardly she wasn't too happy about the "risk" to her life, but I think if the truth be known she really was proud of herself overcoming her fears.

Exciting  Sucess!

Incredible views and exposure make this a blast to hike. I will definitely do this again next time I'm in the park. The last .5 miles with the chains were easier than they look. Not only did I not touch the chains, I only needed to use my hands 4 or 5 times total.
