Day 26: The best of Zion National Park: The Narrows

My son Lukasz and wife Agnieszka entering the Narrows.

Our next stop at the Zion Park was Temple of Sinawava. After getting off the bus we hiked about 2 kilometers on the paved trail along Virgin river with lots and lots of tourist all around. Then, when the paved trail ended, the path dropped into the river and we entered the water. Suddenly all the tourists and the noise disappeared and one of the most touted and breathtaking adventures on our vacation began. We entered The Narrows ( above and below ).
Traveling up The Narrows.
The next one mile long walk up the river involved zigzagging in the water with dramatically colored perpendicular walls around us. That was without a doubt one of the most exciting walks in my life.

Hundreds of Ground Squirrels gather along the trail in Temple of Sinawava begging tourists for food.
