Still in Utah
This morning we got up at 5:30am to get an early start on Zion National Park. We’ve been logging about 5 hours of sleep every night for the past 5 days. We’re running on fumes to say the least.
We had to skedaddle our way down the hill to have time to make our way around the rest of the park. You know what is so amazing about Zion National Park? I’ll tell you what! It’s the bus system they have within park grounds!
There was so much traffic + pollution within the park previously, so the park created the bus system which is completely genius. There are shuttle drop off/pick up spots where buses come by every 5 minutes!
We ate our pack lunch at Emerald Pool, surrounded by savage, stalking scavenger squirrels. Then, it was time to head down. At this point it was around 1pm – don’t head UP any mountains at this point. The sun is way too darned scorching. It’s a cooker.
Oh man, that water was COLD!!!! So refreshing after tht burning hike!
We left Zion + drove the 5 hours to forgettable Ogden, Utah Super 8. Glamor!!!! On our drive we saw a good billboard on a support group for leaving polygamist communities. Oh, Utah…. It’s off to the Land of Nod! Wyoming awaits tomorrow!
