Zion National Park: The Narrows

After seeing part of Zion National Park at dusk, we made it back the next day around noon to the main part of the park and went straight to the Narrows--the most famous stretch of canyon in Zion National Park.  It was pretty incredible.

Entering the Narrows

Braden found a grassy place on our hike up the canyon through the river--a great place for a quick nap

It gets pretty narrow in the Narrows.  Surprising, I know.
