Did a large chunk of the West Rim Trail right after a huge snow storm. 1st up from the Grotto, absolutely zero people and a perfect blue on white day.
by the waves of continual visual beauty. From Lava Point with Dennis Goldsmith.
Wife dropped me off at the northern trailhead. I actually did not want her to drive the harder part of the dirt road. That increased my hike to 16.3 miles. Did not see a single person until I had hiked 13 miles. After Angels Landing, became very crowded. Started at 7:20 a.m. and ended at 1:50 p.m. Absolutely spectacular.
