We were on our way and out the door before 7:00 AM and the gate to Zion was not yet manned.
We rode the entire length of the Canyon to the Temple of Sinewawa. We then got off and took a short hike up to the Narrows and Slot Canyon.
It was cool, the trail was well maintained and it was a leisurely walk. Since it was fairly early in the morning, we almost had the place to ourselves for a while.
After our hike, we boarded the shuttle and then got off on every stop on the way back down. We tried to look around and take some pictures absorb some of it. It was really something at every stop.
On another day, we drove over to St. George UT and did some shopping. The quickest way there was through Zion so we enjoyed that. We also spent some time in Springdale and had lunch at an outdoor cafe.
On thing I want to remember is the Mt Carmel Motel and RV where we stayed. It was a quaint little place with 7 motel rooms for rent and the campground next to it with 8 sites. They were a little tight but I liked the place, the price and the friendly people we met there.
This was our first trip to Zion and I hope we get the chance to come back. There is way more to do there and it is one of our favorites.
