Our southwest road trip continues... We've been in Zion, Utah for the last two days and we've completely fallen in love with this place.
One reader told me that Zion was a spiritual place for her. I whole-heartedly understand that now.
We've been doing a lot of hiking, and my legs are aching from all the climbing. But every time we set out on a new hike, the scenic rewards are beyond what we could have possibly expected.
Yesterday we hiked up to what is called "Angels Landing". It reminded me of the floating mountains in Avatar. You basically have to climb along this razor thin ledge with 1500 hundred foot sheer drops on both sides. It felt treacherous and absolutely exhilarating!
See that paper-thin rocky edge in the picture below.... that's what we hiked across. A park ranger told me later that 4 people have died there in the last few years... yikes! I'm so glad I didn't know that before we set out!
Oh and one last thing about Zion...
we've been eating lots of delicious southwestern cuisine, and I learned something I didn't know about myself.... I LOVE fish tacos!!
We also tried this amazing jalapeno pepper beer, which we're really hoping to find again somewhere.
Well that's all for now...
next stop Grand Canyon.
