Two Days In Zion
Since I’m from the Phoenix area it only made sense to take a road trip up North through Page, AZ and then stay near another beautiful National Park. Passing through Page, AZ I was able to visit the iconic Horseshoe Bend and the photogenic Antelope Canyon (click here for more on Antelope Canyon).
I planned a two day hike in Zion that consisted of 4 hikes totaling 20 miles. Was it worth it? You bet my aching feet it was. Zion is composed of unique red, pink, and white layering rock formations, lush vegetation, high canyon walls and low valleys, the serene Virgin River, and abundance of wildlife.
I was a little trigger happy when it came to taking photos during my hikes but it all paid off. You’ll see beautiful photographs of the following trail: Observation Point, Angel’s Landing, Emerald Pools, and The Weeping Rock. The views from the two most strenuous hikes Observation Point and Angel’s Landing were breathtaking and exhilarating. If you’re an adrenaline seeker please consider hiking Angel’s Landing, you won’t be disappointed.
If you have any questions about the park, where to stay, what to bring, hiking trails etc. send me a message/comment! For anyone planning to visit Zion I highly recommend staying within the park via the campgrounds and/or the lodge. Zion’s beauty changes every hour through out the day as the sun changes the colors of the canyon walls. You will want to be in the park as long as possible.
