Hiking the Narrows

Hiking the Narrows in Zion National Park: Photographs

For years I have been looking at dreamy photos online of people hiking the Narrows in Zion National Park.  Silky, turquoise water flowing through deep, dark canyons. 2000 foot vertical cliffs. Faint beams of sunlight bouncing off the colorful canyon walls. It looks like something that only exists in fairy tales.

Well last weekend, I finally got the chance to backpack the Narrows, and I know now that no photograph can do the Narrows justice. Yet, I couldn’t help myself. So here’s a few of my favorite photos from the weekend.  Hiking the Narrows was an amazing experience, and hopefully these photos inspire you visit the Narrows soon.
