We have just spent two and a half days camped just outside Zion National Park, in Utah. We spent the first day by the pool, prior to taking the park shuttle up the canyon and walking to the trailhead of ‘the narrows’. The second day, we drove the east portion of the canyon, through the mile-long tunnel and back.
Having not spent any time in the desert, this park was spectacular! I’d love to come back in the fall and do some longer hikes….but at 38C it’s too hot to fart.
We’ve also found that spending two days (three nights) seems to be the perfect amount of time to enjoy an area and not feel like we are constantly driving.
From here, we will have to throw that plan out the window and start the long long long trek north. Next stops: Salt Lake City Utah, Butte Montana, Libby Montana…
