The experience of hiking in the Virgin River through such a beautiful canyon was breathtaking. We ran out of adjectives after about two miles. :)
Our rental footwear did an amazing job of keep our feet toasty warm in the 50 degree water—our knees were not so lucky.
We crossed the river frequently and sometimes it looked like this:
But it was all completely worth it to see Wall Street and views like the one below for the last mile or so…
The Riverwalk Trail that leads to this hike was also covered in columbine and shooting star wildflowers, among others.
Eric took over 400 photos today between our Zion hiking and the drive to Bryce Canyon, so obviously this is only a small sampling. We’ll be posting more photos on flickr once I get a chance to go through them.
