Day 203-209 November 1-7 Zion National Park, Utah

While walking the hill sides near the east entrance of Zion I ran into a group of Bighorn Sheep that were grazing on the little bit of shrubbery scattered across the landscape. They stayed for about a half an hour before moving on.

Wrapping up our stay at Zion made the hike to the top of Angels a 5.4 mile round trip hike landing not a difficult hike but a bit intimidating while hiking across the tops hanging on to a chain walking on a 3 foot wide trail and looking down over 1,000+ feet to the left and right but well worth the hike for the views.
One of the great hikes is the Subway/Angels Falls a 8.5 mile round trip hike this is a little more strenuous hike first it’s about a 45 min drive from the campground then you hike down a fairly steep trail to the river about a 400 feet elevation change then you follow the river for the next 4 miles to the subway no real trail more of a goat path that you follow not a lot to see along the trail a few small water falls along the way as you get closer to the end the views become more spectacular with the grand view at the Subway. After spending a couple of hours photographing the area it was time to start the hike back to the car to make it back before the sunsets.
