Our last day in Zion we booked an adventure to go into the wilderness for some rock climbing and canyoneering. Climbing in the morning until our arms were to sore to go up the rock walls, we then headed into the canyons, learn how to rapel and squeeze through tight places. After the adventure there was just enough sunlight left to back into Zion proper and do the easy Emerald Pools trail getting one last look at the beautiful landscape before we leave the next morning.
Our first full day in Zion we get an early start on one of the parks most iconic hikes. Angel’s landing, climbing up dozens of switchbacks to walk over a narrow ridge with cliffs on both side hanging on to an anchored chain for dear life. A challenging hike, but the view of the valley as the sun came up was completely worth it.
The fifth day of the trip consisted mostly of driving in the car, going from Moab in the east of Utah to Zion in the west. We broke up the long drive by stopping in Bryce Canyon National Park for a bit of hiking.
