As if Zion could not get any more wonderful, yesterday we tackled the very beautiful, wonderfully famous “Narrows” hike. If you’ve heard anything about doing canyon tours in Zion National Park I’m sure you’ve heard someone talking about this hike. Like it’s name suggests the Virgin River Narrows (most of the time just called “The Narrows”), is a hike where the canyon walls cascade above and surround you for the entire hike. Most of the time you’re walking through water and, depending on the time of year you decide to take the hike, sometimes have to carry your bag over your head since the water gets so high! Unbelievable.
One of the best parts of the hike is that you don’t have to worry about the sun. Since the canyon walls are so high, there’s hardly any direct sun light. Again, depending on the time of year you decide to hike the Narrows, this could be somewhat of a problem if you’re afraid of cold water! If not, there’s nothing to worry about as this hike is a great deal of fun and has some of the most beautiful scenery in the park and in the world. If you’ve ever gotten a post card from Zion, it was probably taken in this hike. So much fun!
