Exploring the world is something I truly love doing. I have explored so much but so little and there is so much more to explore!
Zion. A name that seems at once mysterious and ageless, much like its namesake National Park.
I had a chance to visit this amazing landscape, albeit only briefly, last night. Hiking my way up the Pa’rus Trail to the Canyon Overlook. Easily the most photographed from vantage point in the park, I found myself surround by dozens of other photographers, tourists, and selfs-takers. Though the view was simply stunning, I longed for a different composition than what is typically captured here.
I made my way down along the trail to the river’s edge (paying attention to the designated access points), and found this spot.
Utah is made of fundamentally different landscapes than i have ever lived in before, but I think I can get used to it. Especially with views like this. -

These days of pure perfection ❤
I have hiked the Narrows in Zion National Park for hours upstream on Virgin River, it is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I thought nothing can beat Monument Valley or Sedona, but Zion is truly magical.
