Vacation to Zion National Park

We had an amazing time at Zion. Our first days hike to the Emerald pools were nice, once there we got to see a small waterfall. The tree frogs echoing through the cavern sounded more like goats. Every few feet along the trail we saw deer. It was amazing to see them up close. They weren’t spooked at all by all the people standing feet away from them. Our next hike seemed to be world famous. We met/saw people from all over the world there. The hike through the narrows is something that everyone should do at least once in their lives. Hiking through a river between two towering red walls gradually getting narrower. Our initial crossing of the river was freezing and painful without any shoes on. Once on the other side we put back on our shoes and continued down the river. It was so much better with our shoes on, and we quickly got use to the water. We hope to go back soon. Maybe next time we will do it from the top down. We are told you have to repel into the canyon.
