Valley of Fire State Park and Zion National Park

We made it to Utah! Our first stop was in Valley of Fire State Park just after leaving Vegas – our first red rocks of the trip. We camped in Zion last night and hiked Angel’s Landing first thing this morning. It was frosty and cold when we started, but we’re glad we did it early; it was very busy on our way down.

We rode the park shuttle to the end of the road and back, stopping to hike to Hidden Canyon on our way back. What a cool hike!

Ryan and I were the Narrows start
