Ben, Jay, Weihaw, and I hiked the Riverside Walk, along the Virgin River, at Zion National Park.

The Riverside Walk is a flat, paved walking trail filled with people who want to get a glimpse of the Temple of Sinawava, near the entrance to the Narrows. At this time, the river was too cold and swift to permit wading up to the entrance, however. Along the path are interpretive signs.

Then, suddenly, the trailed turn in toward the mountain and we were going through this Narrows-like canyon. Cool! Literally, too. The shade was a welcome relief from the hot sun. I think it must have been on this part of the trip or the next day when I slightly sunburned the top of my head. Yes, right through my hair. Next time I'm wearing a hat!

Virgin River flows behind me next to the Riverside Walk.

Return to Zion/Bryce/Grand Canyon trip report.
