Re: Zion NP proposes $9 lottery/permit for Angels Landing

The crowds at Angels Landing are nuts. We got about 2/3 up the chains before somebody farther ahead freaked out and everything stopped. Agree and I too experienced a freak out that lead to having to traverse around said freak out. Thankfully after spending some time on top....WITH a ton of people t...

I agree with this - HOWEVER - the Karen's out there will EXPECT and then later SUE if THEY don't get what they want when they want it......sad but true. Very sad.

Re: Those who Love the Old Trails

It is amazing to me that the gentleman was able to so accurately recreate those trails. That is perseverance plain and simple. At the risk of sounding like the "Get off my Lawn" guy most kids today wouldn't bother to lift their heads up from the cell phone to know that the outside exists. I know the...

At least no fires were started; as this was somewhere back east where they are getting some rain. WHAT is with the over the top gender reveals??? I just do not get...
