Weekend Trip to Zion National Park

Apr 19, 2019 | Adventures, National Parks | 0 comments

Zion National Park has no shortage of epic views. Living within a few hours of five amazing National Parks caused me to grow up visiting these places. Most of those visits entailed car camping and short hikes, but it gave me great exposure nonetheless. Every summer, as well as extended break from school, I think we were out camping. At least this is how I remember it. Rarely did we ever leave the state of Utah so I felt like I was pretty familiar with my home state national and state parks.

In recent years Zion National Park has become a personal favorite of mine. The mix of pine and red rock is a lovely contrast. Wildlife can almost always be enjoyed here if you are looking for it. My admiration for this park increased drastically in 2014. My wife, myself, and two other friends traversed 50 miles from the East Entrance to the Kolob Entrance in less than 20 hours. The traverse was amazing. It was the first time that I had been on so many of those backcountry trails. It was also the first time that I have been up Angel’s Landing.

Since then I have returned several times. Never a disappointment. I love what this park offers. So this past weekend when Les was running the Zion 100k I took advantage of the opportunity to accompany her down to be able to go and enjoy more of Zion National Park. I am so glad that I did!
