What a place! 20 years ago I was in Zion on a family trip, and I loved it, but I don't think I saw it then. This trip, I saw it. I clung on to the chains of Angel's Landing, hiked the many switch backs, and I got my feet wet hiking in the Virgin River going up the Narrows. What a place indeed.
I went with the Prescott Area Backpackers, and what a great group they were. If you're ever in the Prescott area, definitely look them up, you'll have a blast! I'll be headed up to Hell's Gate with this group in a couple weeks.
Again, great trip, and a great way to test a lot of the gear I'll be taking on the PCT.
