Hiking in Utah: The Narrows, Zion National Park

We all expected The Narrows to be the most challenging hike of our trip to Utah. We had been told it was a hike along and in the Virgin River, through a slot canyon, a hike with many slippery rocks, strong rapids, and cold water.

And that's exactly what it was.

    1. Trying to stay on our feet over the slippery rocks and strong current was the most difficult part.

  10. I've done that hike, though we backpacked from the top and spent the night. We had lots of water, so it was quite a challenge.

  13. In spite of the cold water and slippery rocks, it looks like it was worthwhile. I hope to do that hike someday soon. Not sure I can talk my husband into it, though. May have to just tag along with a group like I did when I hiked part of the Grand Canyon last year. :)
