Zion National Park, you will always have my heart.🌲 . . Have you ever visited a place and immediately fallen in love? That’s what happened the first time we visited this unreal gorgeous place in Southern Utah, and every time since. Each visit seems too short and we miss it as soon as we’re home. . . Where in the world is your instant-love location? . . #TeamZAdventures #TeamZ #Zion #ZionNationalPark #ZNP #Travel #Twins #Toddlers #TravelWithToddlers #Hike #Hiking #GetOutside #TheNarrows #VirginRiver #Utah #SouthernUtah #River #OutdoorsyAF @zionnps
The Narrows was the last hike we completed during our visit to @zionnps. Thanks to @sirmattyfatty we were able to see just how tiny we are when compared to these amazing land formations. ⛰🥾🧢 Hiking in water was no joke. 😂 #zion #zionnps #zionnationalpark #thenarrows #nationalpark #tourofzion #nature #utah #virginriver #hike #hiking #zionnp #goparks #nationalparkgeek #zionpledge #findyourpark #nps #usinterior #roamtheplanet #waterfall #optoutside #shotoniphone #discoverearth #naturelovers #parksproject #radparks #nature #adventure #explore #msvasquezonbreak
What a crazy day! Started hiking the #zionnarrows at sunrise today and 2 miles in we heard people calling for help on top of a 6 story waterfall... we were able to get #searchandrescue to save them! Then we continued to walk the beautiful #virginriver !!! Zion is amazing but we are finally exhausted! Ready for #vegas relaxation! Haha
Last stop on our national parks tour @zionnps ❤ 🌄 #sunset , #zion , #zionnationalpark , #virginriver , #nationalparks , #utah
Heading back out on this little stroll, we saw a photographer taking pictures of his partner, who was posing on the rocks in the cold, beautiful emerald blue water of the Virgin River. I wanted a picture of the person posing for perspective so I opened my phone to snap one, and in that time the photographer came out to give his model a kiss and a smile. I accidentally captured this sweet moment! Know anyone who was hiking/taking photos in Zion National Park yesterday? Help me find this couple! . #zion #zionnarrows #zionutah #hiking #hikingphotography #emeraldpool #emeraldpools #virginriver #travelphotography #travelgram #travelcouple
A very Zion sunset. The Virgin river pictured here is never far when you visit Zion (on a typical visit, anyways). If you hike the Narrows, you'll be going through the river. The Virgin river is the lifeblood of the area, helping to create the lush biomes found on the canyon floor while also producing violent outbursts that wash away everything in its way. Roads, trees, and boulders are nothing to this river at its fiercest.
See those two guys setting up their tripods in the water? I meant to thank them for adding a little something to this photo. I wonder what kind of pictures they walked away with. I'm tagging this with #favoritecapture2018 because...well, it's my favorite photo I shot this year. The idea came from a friend of mine that I've never actually met in-person. Normally that would be considered weird or creepy, but the IG photographer community is pretty awesome. I've been able to connect with people to share tips and ask for advice. Some get hundreds of thousands of 'likes' on their photos while others get fifty, but in the end, does it really matter? We're all just capturing and sharing what we love and what inspires us. Post what you love, regardless of the 'like' total. I have to remind myself this every day. I'm tagging a few people in here that have helped me along the way.

Hey @zionnps we didn’t expect to see two Mule Deer deep in The Narrows of Zion this morning! Just so people know there are vertical 2000ft plus cliffs on each side of the river. Not sure how or where they got in?!
Zion National Park, Utah. I was hoping to hike Angel's Landing but couldn't because of a knee injury....definitely going back! . . . #zion #zionnationalpark #utah #nationalpark #nationalparks #virginriver #canyon #angelslanding #river #usa #america
Here is a "flash back Friday" photo from June of 2017. Angela and I talk about Southern Utah as the most amazing and diverse place in Our Country. It never seems to prove us wrong. This was our first glimpse of the Narrows in Zion National Park. We grabbed our suggested walking sticks that were abandoned by the canyon wall and set out on a wet adventure. The hike went up the Virgin River for about 90 minutes. We look forward to completing this sketchy hike in the future. Until then we will smile and tell stories of a faraway home.
The Narrows is an amazing slot canyon water trek, and one of my favorite hikes in the States. Managed to keep my balance in the rushing river for over 11 miles of stunning scenery…before tripping and faceplanting on the dry, flat, paved path back! . . . #travelmemories #zionnationalpark #hikingday #Zion #hikingtrail #rivers #girlswhohike #wearetravelgirls #dametraveler #sheisnotlost #wildwest #nationalpark #travelphotography #canyon #findyourpark #adventureculture #hikinglife #nationalparks #canyons #virginriver #thenarrows #splash #challengeaccepted #wanderlusting #womenwhohike #fitnessgirls #utahgram #nps #landscapephotography
The off-season in Zion is a great time to enjoy the park with a little bit of solitude. We are still outfitting groups for the Narrows all winter long and we have received a lot of great feedback from those that have braved the cold so far! If you are visiting in the next couple months, feel free to contact us on recent conditions and let us help you make your trip great! . . . @wanderlustphotography . . . #beaUTAHful #utahisrad #zionnationalpark #wanderlust #southernutah #utah #lifeelevated #utahgram #xputah #outside #zionnarrows #angelslanding #wanderlust #neverstopexploring #zioncanyonvillage #thenarrows #ZNP #zion #angelslanding #slotcanyon #virginriver #springdaleutah #zioncanyon #utahunique #visitutah #wowutah #hikeutah #exploreutah
Zion Narrows A selfie from a February trip into the Narrows. I don't normally go the selfie route but I wanted to add a bit of perspective to this one. So after getting the scene I set the ten second timer and made a few mad dashes down the canyon. This is where Orderville Canyon meets the Virgin River. It was towards the end of an incredible day wading the river in winter, seeing ice and snow and having a blast. Air temp was 27 and water temp was 39. Let's just say, I was glad I rented the dry pants and canyon boots!! Having been once in November wearing shorts and sandals, I knew I wanted a bit more warmth. Was really a great day and I spent over seven hours in the water.

#thiswas2018 the year we hiked a famous river upwards and we faced so many battles. But as I told you, enjoy the company of those who care for you and appreciate every small unique event that sure will shed light on the dark days. ☺️ . .

Having only 2 batteries and not going to be around a power source, I was concerned about my camera battery life. I'd stop, take some pictures and make a deal with my self, "if whatever lies around the bend is not better than what I just saw, I'll keep hiking and save some battery." What a good idea I thought, the "problem" is that it does get better around every corner, a lot better, for miles. Long story short, I made it through the entire trip with plenty of battery life, learned a lot of things and took some great memories #narrowstopdown #virginriver #utah . . . . . . . . . . #zion #findyourpark #zionpledge #ig_utah #usaprimeshot #iloveutah #getoutside #longexposhots #slotcanyons #zionnationalpark #protectourparks #utahisbeautiful #wowutah #parkroamers #zionnarrows #long_exposure #peoplewhohike #zionoutfitter #narrows #nps #zionwilderness #igutah #utahgram #nationalparks #exploreamerica #exploreutah #canont6s
Another view in Zion Canyon. I love how the diffused lighting makes the shot look like a painting. ❤️ ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ #zion #zionnationalpark #zioncanyon #heaven #mountains #cliffs #canyon #redrocks #river #trees #virginriver #rocks #riverrocks #hiking #trail #springdale #utah #southernutah #traveling #roadtrip #losangelesphotographer #writersofinstagram #writer #thrillerbooks
Sometimes I don’t love the skin I am in. Sometimes I criticize too much about myself. It is in these moments that I look at photos like this. I will never not love seeing myself surrounded by nature. I will always love the body that has carried me underneath the sky and among the trees. The body that has walked on mountain tops and chased adventure. It is in these moments that I am always reminded that I have reasons to love myself. 💚💙
My favorite photo of all our trips so far. Always venture further in the canyon away from the crowds. The Narrows. 🏜
Utah's Zion National Park envelopes you with natural wonder. 🌎 ⛰ ☀️ _______________________________________ 📍 Observation Point Trail, Zion NP, UT, USA🇺🇸 #instatravel #beautiful #nature #mextures #shotoniphone #fatalframes #outdoors #utah #travel #usa #naturephotography #slc #saltlakecity #roadtrip #thanksgiving #travelgram #adventure #utahgram #america #photography #hiking #natgeo #vacation #desert #art #love #winter #virginriver #canyons #explore #outdoors #naturephotography
Back lit trees besides Virgin River, against sheer sandstone walls, glowing in reflected light @zionnps. Leisurely walking along the river with just a old Nikon F100 with #velvia50 . This moment captures three in one- backlight, reflected light and skylight. Knowing the dynamic range limitations of film simply forces you to look for right light and composition that sings with it. ******** #virginriver #virginrivernarrows #zionnationalpark #reflectedlight #ig_shotz_trees #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography #usinterior #usparksandmonuments #naturalunited #longexpo_addiction #filmphotography #35mm #ishootfujifilm #velvia #westbysouthwest #stellar_shots #global_creatives #np10k #landscape_capture #landscape #landscapephotography #utah #yesvisitutah #ig_shotz #ig_myshots
My #2 favourite National park is Zion National Park in Utah. A must visit Park. Words are not enough for this place! This place will change you from the inside out. The only hike we did was Angel Landing and believe me you won’t regret. We wanted to experience Riverside walk but the water was freezing cold that we could not even go further after just crossing the river 😂 I would say we we’re not prepared with required gears for this. . . .

Fun time in Virgin River Gorge. Stitch feel like part of their ohana. Stitch like hiking with ohana @therealmichaelmcnew and @alisiamcnew. ~ #arizonahiking #virginriver #deserthiking #riverbed #authenticstitch #liloandstitch #ohana
