I took my time watching the park film and going to a brief Ranger Program about the park's geology and started this at 1230. Other than it being hot again, I really liked this. I think I liked that it was higher, and that it felt more challenging and strenuous than Angel's Landing. Angel's Landing was good, but having done the Grand Teton a week before, it wasn't as exposed or challenging as I thought it would be. No condors on this hike, but a nice storm blew up the canyon and produced a brief heavy rain with lots of great lightning. Afterward I got to watch rocks and muddy water run down the canyon walls. Also, there were some nice falls other places in the canyon and the Virgin River was running muddy. It was a good storm.
