Default Zion National Park

Part 3 of my recent travels to Utah, etc. Welcome to Zion National Park...another breathtaking place to visit.

This was my second visit to Zion. I hiked up the Angels Landing trail for the second time. All images taken with the 10.5mm Fish Eye except for #2 (Canon S90).

#1.Here's an overview of the lower section of the trail:



#2. The trail gets treacherous but exhillarting for the last half mile up to to Angels Landing. That's 1400 feet to the bottom with only a chain for security. Definitely not for those who have a fear of heights!


#3. The view from Angels Landing


#4. Three of the more significant peaks in Zion (L-R): The Organ, The Throne, and Angels Landing. BTW, saw a climber scaling the face of Angels Landing. Treacherous as it was, I'm glad I was on the trail and not on the rock face!

Gorgeous photos Jehan. I visited Zion last December and tried the Angels landing trail, but I reached a point where the snow and ice made the already very questionable footing just too risky. So I turned back just about an eighth of a mile from the top. It remains one of the most thrilling hikes I have ever done, and I look forward someday to returning. I'm thinking late October or early November might be a good time -- the weather shouldn't be too hot, but the trails probably won't yet have a glaze of ice and snow, which was the case when I was there in December.

I rented a fisheye lens for my Zion trip, and I was glad I did, because I needed the insane wide angle to capture the amazing scenery. Even so, my photos didn't do the place justice. That place simply must be seen in person.
