The Narrows . . .

We only live a days drive away from Zion, but we have never taken the time to explore any of the parks in Utah, because we were always on our way up to Montana to visit family.  Last year our son took our camper and toured the Grand Canyon and then went around the north side to end up finally in Watchman campground in Zion.  What a beautiful place.  We went back there with them the beginning of November before I had to have my foot operated on.  The last epic hike of the year.  It was so beautiful there and not too crowded.  From the sounds of things, we were lucky.  I guess it is crowded there a lot.  I don't think I would like to be there in the summer; it just looks hot.  I don't do heat well.  Guess that's why we leave the desert and go north every summer.  We hiked up the Narrows about 5 miles.  It was beautiful and we plan to go back there again.  I follow a blog "Oh the Places We Go" and they hike like crazy.  They posted a lot of their Utah hikes and I will be looking them up when we go back.  At the moment I can only sit here with my bandaged foot up and dream and plan.

On another hike, we found petroglyphs.  The rangers finally gave up the location, but they didn't want to.

The last hike until next year.
