Exploring Zion National Park: hiked to the top of Angel’s Landing, walked in the Virgin River, and celebrated @ngenc84 ’s birthday 🎁 🎉🎈 . . . . . . #zion #zionnationalpark #utah #angelslanding #thenarrows #virginriver #hiking #optoutside #travel #happybirthday
Hiking the Narrows means wading in the Virgin river to see the spectacular canyon walls thousands of feet high and only 25' wide in some areas in Zion canyon. Hiking it in February meant no crowds and only seeing 12 people along the way. But, the water was frigid and needed a dry suit, special canyoneering boots for the slippery rocks and neoprene socks to insulate our feet from the cold. When hiking it in October a couple years ago, we were able to wear shorts with the canyoneering boots but there were hundreds of people hiking it with us. Which would you do?
For your entertainment, here are our finest wipeouts from skimboarding in St George last weekend. My personal favorites are the Double Person Wipeout and The Assist 😂 We actually improved quite a bit by the end! It’s a blast to try new things! Skimboarding is the best! #trysomethingnew #skimboarding #stgeorge #virginriver #brothers
This was Day 1 of the Little RV Adventure. Maybe about 3 miles into The Narrows trail/hike @zionnps . ‘In this moment I am happy’. #zion #virginriver #thenarrows #hike @keen #utah #outdoors #livelife #mountains #trainer #coach #personaltrainer #lifestyle @nationalparkgram

Most of the trip consisted of “hold my stuff, I’m gunna go climb that” . . . . #climb #trees #river #outdoors #wild #nature #optoutside #virginriver #kanaravillefalls #explore #adventure
Aun quedan en los bosques ríos de agua transparente, de agua dulce, directo de los nevados, donde las visitas humanas son muy escasas y donde la quietud solo la rompe el hermoso ruido del caudal. 🌲🌲🌬️🌫️ #esperanza #piesenelagua #agüitadelequilibrio #aguaclara #purity #reservadelabiosfera #virginriver #keepitwild #nature #river #cuidemoselagua #traveldiaries #peru
Mmmmm, Zion. The Disneyland of NP's, and yet, more than worth the queuing required. The Instacrowd is always out in force, though, as it goes, most stop at %40; both on the hike, and in life. When you're willing to push past that, the world opens up to you and instead of seeing nature you EXPERIENCE it. Still your self and your senses will attune to all things at once; therein lies the magic. If you're looking for heaven as the final resting place of true believers, this truly is Zion. #zionnationalpark #dontfeedtheanimals #fatsquirrels #beautahful #doubleblowout #vibramfivefingers #bigtoes #new #altras #savedmyass #angelslanding #canyonoverlook #watchman #virginriver #notgoingtohashtagvirgin #stage5 #clinger
Bridges - they allow us to cross over such things as rivers, like this foot bridge here at the Angels Landing trailhead in Zion National Park. They also allow us to drive or walk over deep ravines and heavily-trafficked metropolitan areas. Speaking of bridges, one of today’s new articles in the National Parks Traveler details the NPS’ desire to replace the Lewis River Bridge in Yellowstone National Park due to old age and deterioration. To read more about what the NPS would like to do, and for a link to the NPS comment site regarding this bridge, go to www.nationalparkstraveler.org. #nationalparkstraveler #bridge #nationalpark #nationalparks #zion #zionnationalpark #virginriver #river #angelslanding #landscape #landscapephotography #canon #canonusa #canonphotography #utah #goparks #findyourpark #optoutside
Nice to have a little water to play in @zionnps !🏔🌞#zionnationalpark #virginriver #costsaverholidays #spectacularcanyonsandnationalparks #travel www.greatchickrace.com
You can visit the canyon every day, but everyday it changes. . . . . #outdoorliving #outdoors #wild #canyon #mountain #utah #hiking #river #virginriver #slotcanyons #kanaravillefalls #optoutside

Tuesday was my seventh time exploring this phenomenal place i spent the day experiencing the east side of Zion which was a different experience for me. I just cannot get enough of Zion National Parks surreal beauty!!
Relocating to the amazing zion national park with this image of the narrows. Not the most original image of this location I admit but it's a canyon with a river in it so what can you do? 😊 I also thought that when the going got wet the number of fellow explorers would drop. How wrong was I? I had to wait easily 20 minutes for a clean shot but no complaints, the world is a shared resource and patience is a virtue. 😀 Nikon D800 | Sigma 17-35mm @ 26mm | f13 | 1/5 sec | ISO 100 | no filters #zionnationalpark #utah #usa #thenarrows #virginriver #canyons #nationalparks #travel #explore #gooutside #findyouradventure #landscape #nature #naturalworld #landscapephotography #outdoorphotography #nikon #sigma

Zion National Park, UT. Walked ‘The Narrows’, staked out Angels Landing looking for the California condor, and got a taste of this amazing place. Our National parks are a treasure. #zionnationalpark #zion #virginriver #cathedral #angelslanding #thenarrows #narrows #thenarrowshike #nationalpark #thereissomethingaboutthewest #haventseenacloudfordays
M A J E S T Y 🏜 • The nine known exposed geologic formations in Zion National Park are part of a super-sequence of rock units called the Grand Staircase. Together, these formations represent about 150 million years of sedimentation, representing exposed rock from very different environments and ecosystems🌴 #themoreyouknow . . . . . #theoutbound #hikingcommunity #goingwest #cannahost #openspaces #utah #americanwest #cliffs #zion #desertlife #paiute #erosion #prehistoric #zionnationalpark #virginriver #zion #majesty #bouldering #vegasphotographer #explore #adventure #redrocks #natgeo #uplift #hiking #hikingadventures #ancientrock #wildwest

Mais uma vez encantada com esse lugar...natureza em sua plenitude!! 🏞 #gratitude #nature #adventure #hiking #waterhike #thenarrows #virginriver #zion #utah #findyourpark #zionnationalpark
First day of summer!!! We celebrated Logan’s birthday in southern Utah and enjoyed some amazing hiking in the river and the kids had a blast. These awesome shoes from @merrell ,the Hydro 2.0 sneaker sandal, make it easy for them to walk in the river over rocks and uneven terrain and then dry out so fast. Bring on the hikes in water...we are ready!! Find the shoes at merrell.com. #ad #sponsored #merrell #hikinginwater #kidswhohike #downsyndrome #specialneeds #livebravely #beutahful #youtah #virginriver #firstdayofsummer
The Narrows - Virgin River. It’s the narrowest section of Zion Canyon. The beautiful walls of the canyon get up to 1000 ft tall. You hike in knee deep cold water almost the entire time, sometimes reaching waist deep! The whole river bottom is nothing but big round rocks. It’s kind of like walking on wet bowling balls lol Each bend in the canyon just gets more and more breathtakingly beautiful! We started from the bottom and worked our way up as far as we wanted. Unforgettable.✨
Zion National Park Narrows Hike from the top. 12 campgrounds & we were #5 . . Left @ 1130a & got to our site @ 630p. Eleven miles of beauty.. I did not know what I agreed to 😆 this is my first (and last?) overnight hike 😌 I like showering twice a day. . Once the sun came back up, we had another 10 miles to go to get back.... Did not sleep much. Carried everything on my back. So sore. What a time... 🏕 . But I'm so grateful for my love for planning and doing all of this with me 💕 #zionnationalpark #narrowshike #virginriver #hiking #outdoorsy #rockformations #mothernature #findyourself #foundme #bugsgoaway #poopinabag #peeinriver #nature
Utah trip day 2. How else does one start a trip to Zion except by tackling the infamous Angel's Landing hike? Got up and into the park before sunrise, only way to beat most of the crowds. Didn't make it onto the first shuttle, but did catch number 2. Riding the shuttle out our driver John asked if we saw any angels, I told him "No fresh ones, at least" 😇 #Utah #Zion #VirginRiver #AngelsLanding #hiking #bucketlist #desertlife #NPS #findyourpark #getoutside #publiclands

Hiking the #VirginRiver in @zionnational
Sometimes you have to get lost to find yourself. #zionnationalpark #virginriver #narrows #zionnarrows #getlost #slotcanyon #explore
Hiking #thenarrows with my family was pretty amazing & I’m so glad we got up early to make one of the first shuttles in. I knew that Zion would be crowded, but I never expected to see so many tour buses full of people. National Parks are amazing & such a great way for families to love & explore nature while learning about the land at the same time...but it is nice when you have the chance to experience it without a crowd. Plus when the trail is a river you know it’s going to be epic.
