Dwight - a blur on a bicycle
Another long-awaited visit for me. It seems that is the case for most of the places in this part of the country. We rode right after we finished the North Kaibob trail in The Grand Canyon to Zion National Park. It was a night ride, so we weren't able to see most of the scenery on the eastern entrance of the park but when we woke up the next morning, inside the park, the sight was breathtaking.
Feeling so close to the end of the trip and the urgency to finish, we wanted to make sure we didn't forget one of the focuses of the trip which fueled it in the first place; to explore and enjoy the most beautiful parts of the nation. With this in mind, we decided to stay two nights in Zion, which made it possible to do a balanced, two day-hikes.
The first one being, Angel's Landing, which brought hikers to the very top of the canyon, a strenuous, steep climb.
The second one, The Narrows, which was an easier hike and brought hikers into the depths of the canyon, hiking upstream the Virgin River through the water.
The small portion of Zion we were able to see was unbelievable. There is something for everyone. Go there.
