(Apologies for the crazy picture format.)
Here are some pictures from our hike to Angels Landing in Zion. This 5 miler was pretty strenuous and not meant for anyone afraid of heights. Uh...yeah. Understandable when hiking to the top of this!
This is what the first part looked like (as viewed from above):
Then we got some relief from the blazing morning sun and hiked for a while in "refrigerator canyon"
Next was "Walter's Wiggles"
See the trail behind Wes? The one that tops the narrow cliff with sheer vertical 1000 ft. drop-offs? That's where we were heading.
It was a long way down. Thank goodness for those chains! I only recently developed a mild fear of heights after having children. I would have been having panic attacks if they would have been there.
It was tough scrambling up that last bit to the top. (Don't make fun of my hat. I bought it for trek and it was all I had with me.)
At last we reached the top.
Talk about incredible views!
