Zion Canyon

We soon arrived at Springdale, just outside of Zion Canyon and got settled in another quaint typical American motel. Arriving close to sunset the light does incredible things as it bounces off the red rocks. The little town where we stayed was lovely with the local store and trendy restaurants, it had a very low key feel to it - and I saw my first Hummingbird!. I definitely could have stayed their longer. 

The next day we headed off early ready for another big walk. This time it was the Angels Landing trail, a 4 hour, 5.4 mile walk up the canyon. The end point requires you to climb using rope up to the top with a very steep drop below, something I unashamedly didn't manage. Especially with the lovely signs reminding everyone just how many people had died from falling off. Still the views from where I sat waiting for the others were alright too.
