      Thanks Lisa. I was really blown away by Zion. It was stunning! Would love to go back and do some of the longer hikes too!

    Great stuff, although running down sounds exhausting and a little perilous. My parents went to Zion a few years back in winter and it looked just as stunning as your photos. One of the spots I’m keen to see when I make it to the US.

      Thanks David. Yes, I did look back and think “I’m not sure why I thought that was a good idea” but I had a great time. Its one of my favourite spots in the USA!

    Oh wow. That’s a beautiful trail. I’d hike that. And I’m not a hiker!

      Clifford, it is absolutely stunning! Not the easiest but, as a result, not as crowded!

    Gorgeous photos! Zion is still on my bucket list. I usually wimp out and do the shorter hikes in a national park. I need to step it up because I know that some of the most beautiful landscape is on the longer hikes.

      Thanks Connie! There are so many beautiful shorter hikers around the US National Park System but this one was definitely worth the super early start and very sore feet! Definitely recommend it!

    Reading this brought back lots of memories. I just did Angels Landing but managed to do hikes in Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef as well as Grand Canyon. Beautiful part of the world!

      So jealous! I would love to go to Bryce! You’re right, it’s just an incredible area.

    Recently went here two weekends ago and loved it. A friend and I did the Emerald Pools Trail – amazing sight to see but not nearly as epic as your photos. Living so close (only 2 hours away) – we will be doing other hikes at Zion when the weather gets a little cooler. Hopefully you’ll be back there one day and can do a different hike 🙂

    Wow, a fantastic and crazy hike with awesome views. Can’t believe you ran the whole way down. lol. I would love to do that and the many other hikes at Zion probably not running down the hill. Great photos! Thanks for sharing 🙂 #feetdotravel

    WOW Jealous. Zion is on our US bucket list, as is a few other national parks. The landscapes look sensational, I would enjoy spending time doing some photography there, your pics are great! Running back down?! that’s different 🙂

      Garth, you guys would have a field day with the photos, for sure! And yeah, running was definitely different but I really enjoyed it!

    It’s so nice to not read a listicle when you have such a beautiful destination! Sometimes a good story description is better and allows people to live vicariously through your post! I felt like I was there with ya! #feetdotravel

    Zion National Park looks stunning from a photographers point of view, too. It must be quite demanding to hike the Observation Point Trail with the extreme temperatures and the challenges of the path.

      It wasn’t too bad as I hiked up to Observation Point early in the morning but it can get pretty tough if it’s later in the day! The area is amazing for photos, you are right!

    I absolutely love reading your hiking adventures. I am there with you on your journey but all I can do is imagine the joy you are receiving as I most certainly would not run down a hiking trail like this … and that’s why I love reading your stories! You are an inspiration how you challenge yourself, because you don’t just do it the “normal” way, oh no, a challenging hike isn’t enough of a challenge, you push yourself that little bit more and you are always rewarded! Brilliant. Fantastic views, fantastic story … here’s to your next adventure (and well done on for making this hike in an amazing time, you proved to your tour leader that you could do it!). #feetdotravel

      Thanks Angie – you are making me blush! Travel for me is pushing myself further than I would at home and I love it when a challenge presents itself! Thanks for the kind words!

    Wow, the views make up for the few discomforts along the way. I don’t know about running down but hey, each to their own LOL!

    Such a great way to start a day, indeed. The views are stunning, when all you see are these giant walls and river cutting its way through the valley… I feel these peaceful vibes even from your photos! Would love to do this hike one day! Thanks for sharing #feetdotravel

    Not only have I been convinced that you are an amazing athlete and I would love to go on hikes with you, I have also been reassured that you are an incredible writer! You should become a mountaineer and write stories from the mountains. I would buy every single one of them ha! I would have probably died going up there, begging for you to wait for me. You did it incredibly fast! And yes, I love the photos too!

      You’ve only just been convinced? Thank you though – guess I will have to do more posts (and hikes) like this!
