Zion Valley from Angels Landing

Last “snapshot” post from my trip to Zion Canyon. This is the view from the top of Angel’s Landing looking towards Zion Valley. I sat up there by myself for a while and waited for sunset. I was prepared to get down in the dark, but thought better of it and left early. There was no clouds, and I didn’t want to traverse the icy ridge in the dark to get back. The rest of my party had been sitting in the parking lot bellow waiting for me for a couple of hours, so I decided to call it a day.

Here’s how Angels Landing looks like from the bank of the Virgin River.

The view up there was amazing, but the hike to the top was the most memorable part for me as I had no idea what to expect. If I had time, I’d do this hike over again in a heart beat, but there are two other must-do hikes in Zion that are still on my check list: the Narrows and the Subway. Until next time.
