More Mountain than Hiking

Zion Narrows

Thursday we set out to hike the Zion Narrows from Chamberlains Ranch to the end. There was also plenty of water on the hike. Walking in chest deep water as well as a few short swims were also part of the hike. Late in the afternoon it began to thunder with lightening and of course some rain. We had to make a decision, continue into the last five hours of the hike with no safe high ground in case of flash flooding or make the last campsite home for the night. Sleeping on a covering of dry grass and leaves while covered by a space blanket is getting more intimate to the mountain that I really had desired. On Friday morning we were off and moving. Out of the river at lunch time and off to a sandwich and ice cream shop.
