Heaven on Earth   Sucess!

I hiked from Ponderosa Ranch and after 3 miles or so, the footprints in the snow ran out. Fortunately for me, the route was pretty easy to follow with deer tracks coming in and out, cut logs, clearings in the brush and snow depressions marking the way. I traversed the length of the rim to see Zion Canyon and the eastern extent of the national park. This hike didn't take a lot of work, but the views were tremendous. Why isn't this place visited more often?

Incredible Views  Sucess!

Some amazing viewpoints around the edges, even for Zion. From Many Pools canyon. You can walk forever once you are up on the plateau.

Fire!  Sucess!

Great views. Got to watch a fire take off on the rim above Angel's Landing. Lots of torching. Made for a memorable day.
