Firstly, I am so sorry for being so awful at these holiday posts! Only two left (this one and Vegas), and then I'll do the reviews of my favourite eating places in the US, as well as a review of the Vegas hotel and Warner Bros. Studios.
Secondly, Zion National Park was probably my second favourite place we visited after Beverly Hills. Zion is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful, awe-inspiring and magical places I have ever seen. It was truly humbling to stand amongst the running streams, green trees, and stare up at the huge canyon of rock, knowing how lucky I am to be a part of this crazy and incredible world. It was paradise.
This is pretty much the image I used to have as a child of what Heaven would look like, except I imagined it with a few more clouds (with Angels on the clouds of course) and waterfalls everywhere :P teehee
We found a friendly critter or two along the way
This was at the end of the 'easy' path for the trail called 'The Narrows', sadly we didn't have the right equipment to cross the river and go any further on to the harder part of the trail.
Personally I preferred Zion National Park to Grand Canyon National Park, but I think maybe it would feel a lot different if you stood at the bottom of Grand Canyon and stared up - it was just too overwhelming to grasp how huge and great Grand Canyon was, whereas Zion had the perfect mix of overwhelming, humbling, and awe-inspiring beauty.
