Zion

Today was the third park in the Grand Circle – Zion. We didn’t know what to expect here. Up early again and managed to get one of the few RV parking spaces at the Visitor Centre, then caught the free shuttle bus to the far end of the canyon. Zion is a place of towering peaks, and a narrow canyon and river.  

  We walked to the start of The Narrows, where the path continues through the river. It’s supposed to be spectacular but we didn’t have the right gear to tackle it. Next time… 

The warning sign of a high flash flood risk today wasn’t putting people off either. 

 We found a trail that went along the side of the rocks to the emerald pool. It was beautiful there and as peaceful as it could be on a public holiday.  

        We didn’t have time to do the more strenuous hikes so we headed back to the RV, taking in every bit of the fabulous scenery.  

        We’ve got neck ache today from looking up all the time. Even the shuttle buses have windows in the roof so you can see the peaks!  

 So now we are heading back to Las Vegas. We say goodbye to FB Beast tomorrow and pick up a car for the next leg.
