Zion Narrows, Top down, two day backpacking trip.
It's been a hot minute since I've posted on insta, and I am sure instagram will punish me for it.
This here is part of why.
Every time I make plans for an adventure of this type my feeble mind thinks it is the best idea in the world. About half way through the trip, I wonder why I decided to do it, convinced there is no way I will survive.
Being out in the wild reminds me of how powerful our planet and the wild really is; I am no match for natural forces, no matter how prepared I think I am. Especially, in this case, for a canyon whose 1000 foot walls were carved by the river I am trekking in.
But I survive and at the end I am ready for the next challenge.
And so life goes.

Wading through crystal clear, waist-deep pools (sometimes chest-deep, depending on where you step!) along the slot canyon behind The Subway in Zion National Park brought us to this hidden waterfall. We saw maybe 15 people total during the 8 hours we spent doing this hike, and no one else swam this part but us! I am standing in water up to my rib cage in this photo and I couldn’t tell you how cold it probably was, but imagine swimming in a canyon river in October and you might get the idea. 😊
