The park is famous for big wall climbs on the sandstone cliffs, and hiking in the canyons. Some of the hikes involve walking in the streams, and I just saw that 2 hikers were rescued recently when they were unable to navigate through the deep water in one of the slot canyons. The last time I visited Zion it was in July and was about 100 degrees, so this trip was much more pleasant!
Once out of Zion, we continued on through St. George, Utah; Mesquite, Nevada; Las Vegas, Nevada, and spent the night in Barstow, California, finishing up our trip the next day.
Blogger is giving me some trouble loading photos, so I'll try to add some more later. In the mean time, if you want to view more photos of Zion, check out: www.flickr.com/photos/zionnps
