Angels Landing at Zions National Park

Daniel and I just got back from a trip out to Utah for a family reunion on my moms side. We spent several days right outside Zions National Park. We were able to hike Angels Landing. It is 2.5 miles one way that ascends 1,500 ft.

This is the last half mile of the hike. You hike across the ridge with a 1,200 ft drop off on the left and a 800 ft drop off on the right.

This is one of the steeper parts, luckily they have chains that give you a little comfort.

We made it to the top. That is my brother Grant and his girlfriend Amber, my brother Brian and Daniel and I.

The descent. Going down is always harder for me then going up.
