Katie and I headed up to the Kolob area to escape the afternoon crowds of Zion. We did this short little hike with a great views to stretch our legs some and then made a few stops at various pullouts and trailheads in the area.

The trail to the viewpoint was in great shape and the hike was generally pleasant with some nice views. The trail gets warm and there is no shade, plan accordingly.

road trip to utah with my nebraska friend sue
in 2009 we hit the north rim, zion and bryce
in 2016 we saw natural bridges, arches and canyonlands
this year the plan got revised a few times, and we decided on zion, bryce and capitol reef
hadn't been to the kolob canyons area of zion, so we got there late afternoon
hiked taylor creek to the double arch alcove
pleasant hike with about 40 easy creek crossings and a couple of cabins along the way
the alcove made for a good destination
had time to hike the short timber creek overlook
great views, very windy, finished in the dark
stayed in hurricane and had dinner at alberto's - good cheap mexican food
always a bonus to get in some new hikes on a travel day :)
