Zion Narrows

I can't believe it's taken me all these years to hike into the Narrows down at Zion.
On a hot day, that water feels wonderful!
There were lots of other hikers, but the benefit to that is that one of them kindly took my picture.

Here is a closeup.
The water was mostly knee deep but sometimes deeper, and my rolled-up pants got pretty well soaked.
But after I got out of the river and started hiking back, they dried in 10 minutes flat.
It was over 100 degrees in the canyon that day (up to 103, they said).

I can't believe you hadn't hiked the narrows before! Crazy! Isn't it wonderful?
