Angels Landing

Ed went with Kathryn and her family on a strenuous hike to the very top of Angels Landing. It has been 40 years since he has been on that hike. The last time, they stopped before the very top because of strong gusty winds and the narrow trail. Check this item off the bucket list!

This is Angels Landing - the goal of this hike.

It was beautiful too see so many different rock formations along the trail.

Walter’s wiggles is a series of switchbacks built into the cliff.

Zion-3

Although most of the trail was steep, the last half mile was treacherous as sections were only 2 feet wide with cliff drop offs on both sides. Six people have died since 2004 from falling off the edge of the cliff.

The narrow sections were a bit scary. We were glad it was not windy when we were hiking!
