Observation point hike (Zion again)

On Sunday I took a hike that I've been wanting to do for a while, it's up in Zion National Park near Weeping Rock, it's a long hike going 2100 vertical feet up and takes in 4 miles of hiking along a steep switch back to the top of Observation point.

There are many views on this hike it's wonderful hike, although I would do it in the spring or fall when the temperatures are down to a nicer feeling temp.

Well here are a few of the photo's that I took on the way up and on the way down.

This is looking down into Echo Canyon and out into the Zion proper 

And this is Echo canyon above that deep gorge above. 

This is one of the views to the top 

This was part of what I saw on the hike, it was really hot up there and took a lot out of 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.
