Angels Landing is one of the world's most renowned hikes and is an unforgettable short adventure hike worthy of all bucket lists. The views of Zion Canyon's 270 million-year-old rock layers will time travel you back to the Triassic period when this section of the Colorado Plateau was a flat basin at sea level. Anyone in an average physical condition can make this heavenward trek, but it can be mentally challenging with its steep switchbacks and sheer drop-offs. There are chains bolted into the cliff to provide secure handholds. People who have a severe fear of heights should not attempt the final stretch but can enjoy the trail all the way to Scout Lookout.
i remember finally making it down the 1.5 mile of switchbacks straight down the canyon and stopping...such a breathtaking view full of the unknown...all we knew was that somehow we had to continue into the desert for 10miles, 40lb backpacks, and absolutely no guide...
you should've seen the smile on our faces! 😁

No words can explain the beauty my eyes have seen and ears have heard...
We were so exhausted when we finally made it to the campground at havasupai...and when we got there it seemed as if all the best tent sites were taken...we put our bags down and i ran ahead to see if i could find the perfect spot for us...and i did!...there it was...on the side, away from everyone, surrounded by trees and a perfect little stream of water...our perfect camping spot...it seemed like it was just there waiting for us and our tent...we set up our tent as fast as possible, ate some dinner, took the cover off our tent and just layed there! exhausted...looking at the sky and the canyon surrounding us! we couldnt believe we were about to spend our first night in such a magical place...once night fall came, the moon and stars began to show...and as it got darker and darker the stars got brighter and brighter...there we were in the grand canyon, in the middle of nowhere about to sleep under the brightest stars you could ever imagine...
