Hiking up to the East Temple loop

Interesting day of hiking, started up the Zion overlook and then went up (1000 feet) to the saddle of the East Temple and then on down to the bottom of Pine Creek.

It was suppose to be a 2-4 hour hike but I didn't know or remember how the hike went so I wandered around and finally found my way out of this canyon, it was a day full of things going wrong but right, if you can understand that. It took me over 6 hrs to get through to the bottom of the Pine Creek exit.

This is looking down at the switch back going up to the east side of Zion

The saddle looking up at the East Temple  

Looking north Hepworth Canyon I think!

Same as above just portrait view

Different spot I found by going the wrong way

 Looking east toward the way out but had to find the right spot to go down

Bottom in sight, beautiful view

Getting closer to the bottom I like this one lots of colors, and it was getting dark

Found this on the way out funny looking oil in the sand it seem to glow

Well thanks for going along on this journey with me, 
Take care

About Me

My photo
I lived in Park City,Utah. I've been an avid climber, skier, hiker, Photographer and yoga, participant. Travel much to do all of these activities and want to continue to do more traveling. Now that I've finished my travels of the Oregon Coastline and found that I'm not to fond of the rain but love the Ocean and surf. I'm now settled down in Southern Utah and traveling the four corners area. The warmth of the desert is a welcoming feeling for my wet bones, I love it here and believe I'll stay for awhile. The photographing here is to say the least more fun and really plentiful as you can see if you take a look at my site. Take care and get yourself out of the indoors and out into this great big beautiful world we live in.
