Zion National Park

We dropped the trailer at Zion National Park on Wednesday and headed to Cedar City to pick up my Mom at the airport.  Zion is a beautiful park and the campground is lovely.  You camp right in the canyon near the Visitor’s Center. 

This is the view from our campsite:

We took the tram out to the Emerald Pools on Thursday even though it was incredibly hot!  We have had great weather up until now – here it is in the 100’s.

It was a tough day of hiking since we took the long way back from the Emerald Pools on the Kayenta Trail.  After a good 1.5 miles and some rock climbing . . .
