Zion National Park - Angels Landing
An iconic walk recommended by the English Utah resident Caroline sat next to on the flight from Manchester to Vegas. The shuttle bus queues are pretty long, but the scenic highway is closed to private vehicles in summer.
The descriptive from our National
Guide is “one of the most memorable hikes in the entire National
Park system is the 5.4 mile round trip adventure to Angels
Calling it an adventure sells it short. The last 0.5 mile is a
raising experience that takes you along a knife edge ridgeline
1000' drops on either side.
So far only 5 people have died doing this walk out of 24 falling deaths in the park (excludes deaths due to suspicious circumstances!)
This is the start of the walk, the white dots are people on Walter's Wiggles.
Beware the tiny chipmunks running across the path.
Murray before the narrow path with chains
This is the sight that makes many people opt out.
This really is the last 0.5 mile of the path we walked up
Us at the top and end of Angels Landing, there really is nothing behind us.
