Riverside Walk

Something I’ve been dying to get to, but hadn’t had the time to do yet are all of my photos from Zion’s National Park. If you have never been, you need to get your butt down there. Zion’s is definitely one of my favorite parks. We didn’t get to spend a whole lot of time there…but you can actually do a lot of stuff in an afternoon! We did about 4 hikes in just 5 hours. I didn’t get the chance to do my favorite hike, Angel’s Landing, but that’s alright. No picture could ever do that experience justice. Instead, we did the easier hikes in the canyon, as my mom needed easier routes for her joints.

The first thing we did, however was drive along the canyon for a bit..

 

Then we started our day of hiking. Our first trail was the Riverside Walk. If you take the shuttle up the canyon (which is required if you want to hike at all), this trail is the very last stop. It’s a relatively flat walk along side the beautiful river in Zion’s.

The red rock is just stunning.

Right at the end of the trail starts the entrance to the Narrows. If you don’t know what the Narrows are, it is an extremely cool and slightly dangerous trek to get to a beautiful slot canyon. I believe you usually have to get a permit, know how to swim, and learn to repel in order to do this hike. Depending on the time of year, the trail may be closed. If the water levels are too high, the river is too swift to do the trek.

Unfortunately, I’ve never done it, but I hope to some day! Until then, I have this beautiful scene.

 

It was a really breezy trail, and a large majority of it is wheelchair accessible. Bring water, DON’T FEED THE ANIMALS, and enjoy the views (:
