A few weeks ago, I made a quick trip to the southwest corner of Utah. I'd driven past Zion National Park many times when I lived in Colorado and drove between there and southern California, but I never stopped to check it out and I've wanted to do so since the early 90's. What a great park! The hiking was particularly good. Of the few trails I hiked, I liked Watchman best.
Below is a waterfall on another trail. There were a number of waterfalls going with all the snow pack melting. In fact, a few trails were closed, such as the Narrows, for all the snow melt.
I didn't hike Angels Landing this time. I'll have to check it out next time around.
On the way back from Zion, I stopped at Snow Canyon State Park. What a great little park!! Here's a view from my campsite in the dry camping section:
The hiking there was very good. I especially liked hiking across the petrified sand dunes. It was a bit of a challenge in places, but lots of fun!
Utah has loads of incredibly scenic parks and I'm sure I could spend months there hiking and exploring. I look forward to doing that some day.
