From the beginning now! We left Los Angeles at 3-4am to do good time…adrenaline that’s what kept us going and tons of coffee. We arrived to Zion at around 1pm we had to figure out how everything worked and shuttles all that lovely stuff, also a HUGE rock had fallen and was blocking one of the hikes I wanted to do so that was a bummer but whatever still want to go back and do Angels landing. Rambling I ramble.. Anyways zion was extremely hot that day 90s hot which we knew and we knew that Bryce would be much cooler so we were well prepared. We hiked to the emerald pools (see pictures below) which was a 3.5 mile hike or so, that was a nice hike to get our feet wet it had its share of good shade which was much appreciated. We weren’t sure where we were going exactly we just went and thankfully didn’t get lost, always a plus. When we arrived to the upper pools it felt like a little oasis we were surrounded by trees, rocks and grand cliffs. After this we had lunch then headed to weeping rock which I will get to on the next post 😁.
