Watchman Trail

This is a Zion classic. The trail is a moderate two-mile hike with a mild 456' ascent. The dirt path leads along the foothills beneath the massive Bridge Mountain and ends at a bench near the base of the Watchman spire. Most of this trail is in full sun and through a hot desert environment, dotted with prickly pear cactus and a few other less common cacti. Many Zion National Park landmarks are visible along much of the hike including: Beehives, Towers of the Virgin, West Temple and the Altar of Sacrifice. The end of the trail stops at a view point of the Watchman. This Zion National Park landmark is a red spire rising to an elevation of 6545'.

Kari just did this hike .... now the tribe expects photos!  Lots of them!  :-)

We had a great time. The light on those hills at the end of the day was unreal and spectacular. Photos to come when I get home.

Thanks Aggie!
Wow! Now Kari has done Angel's Landing! Not for the faint at heart :-)

Angels Landing

The Angels Landing Trail is one of the most famous and thrilling hikes in the national park system. Zion's pride and joy runs along a narrow rock fin with dizzying drop-offs on both sides. The trail culminates at a lofty perch, boasting magnificent views in every direction. Rarely is such an intimidating path so frequented by hikers. One would think that this narrow ridge with deep chasms on each of its flanks would allure only the most intrepid of hikers. Climbers scale its big wall; hikers pull themselves up by chains and sightseers stand in awe at its stunning nobility. The towering monolith is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the Southwest.
