We arrived in Zion in the afternoon on Friday and decided to do the riverside walk and then go into the narrows from there. As we were walking, we noticed the river didn't seem as crystal clear or blue as it was last year. boo. The water was also FREEZING. I brought my new trekking poles with for the journey, which DEFINITELY came in handy. The merky water made it difficult to find good footing. There were several people at the start of the narrows hike, but the numbers dropped quickly due to the cool water. We went for a little ways but decided there was no way we would be able to make it all the way to our destination, plus we were loosing light, so we turned around :cry: We saw some people who rented gear and were just floating down the river (AWESOME!), so we are thinking next time we will try that. Also, we hope the water will be a little more clear upon our return. The canyons are just so incredible that, even though we didn't make it as far as we planned, it was beyond gorgeous and enjoyable. The canyons glow red as the sun starts going down, and the greens are just perfect next to the water. Zion is truly breathtaking!
