Zion National Park

Our trip to Zion National Park was inspiring. The hikes, the scenery, the wildlife, the lack of humidity!

We stayed at a hotel/lodge ( in a small town just outside the Parks South enterance, called Springdale, UT. A very well thought system of shuttle buses would pick you up at the hotel and have you hiking in Zion with about 20 minutes, never having to start your car.

Multiple day hikes range from easy, level ground to strenous, life threatening and exhausting, a nice mix for everyone.
'Angels Landing' is one of those strenous, life threatening hikes that comes highly recommended to the adventure seeker.

Bryce Canyon NP

To hike Bryce Canyon NP is to step back millions of years to observe and enjoy what Mother nature, water/ice and wind can do to our landscape by creating pointed rock formations called 'HooDoos'. Bryce Canyon will leave you scratching your head as to the HooDoo existance and what keeps them standing. Geologically speaking, this has to be considered one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
Two Thumbs up!!!
