Entering the Virgin Narrows, Zion National Park

Post on November 13, 2012 Landscape


Save the best for last, we ventured out to the magnificent Zion Narrows on last day of our American Southwest trip. Entering the one of the famous slot canyon hike of the Southwest Utah, bottom-up at the end of Riverside walk — Temple of Sinawava, we were surrounded with sculptured sandstone walls, colorful Fall foliage in knee-deep Virgin River.

Inside the Narrows, you will be wading in the rocky and cold water right beneath thousand-feet tall canyon walls. That separates the Narrows from outside world — where National Geography once rated #5 in America’s Best 100 Adventures. It’s better than the Subway? Definitely yes, but the views are different. Here, you get good mixes of the Virgin Rivers and Autumn trees with majestic walls as backdrop turns after turns on the entire trail!

This picture was taken just a few turns after the entrance, one of few areas with good view of red foliage near the mystery fall.
