Pa'rus Trail

Pa’Rus Trail

The Pa’Rus Trail in Zion National Park is a wonderful paved path that follows along the Virgin River. It is the only trail in Zion that is both bicycle and pet-friendly (on a leash). I’ve hiked along this trail, once in May of 2014 and again in April 0f 2015 in the evening which is […]

Riverside Walk

Riverside Walk

The Zion Canyon Road ends at the Temple of Sinewava where the wonderful one mile long Riverside Walk starts. This paved path follows the Virgin River and is perfect for anyone, including those in a wheelchair. It is a very popular trail, so expect to have some company. The further up you go, the walls […]

West Rim

West Rim (including Angels Landing)

The length of the West Rim trail with a side trip up Angels Landing is a great sampler platter of Zion National Park from the ponderosa and oak leaf shrubs of the high desert to the sandstone cliffs and finally down to the Virgin River in the Zion Canyon. In May of 2014 Kristen and […]

Apgar Lookout

Apgar Lookout Early 2015

With a drier spring, some of the early trails such as Apgar Lookout are opening up sooner than normal. While we still walked on a bunch of snow, it was amazing to get out on a perfect day! Hiking to Apgar Lookout has almost become a tradition of mine at the beginning of the season. […]

Hidden Canyon

Zion National Park is home to many slot canyons with an impressive one called Hidden Canyon inside of the main Zion Canyon. Hidden Canyon is easily accessed and fun to explore for everyone with a little bit of work. Sweeping views, then a slot canyon with towering walls await. The trailhead is easily found at […]

Vulture Peak

North Fork Alpenglow

Went for a Sunday drive with my wife this past weekend. We left in the afternoon to catch a perfect sunny day and time it with the alpenglow that was sure to come. We ended up at Polebridge to capture the stunning pink light kissing the mountains. Some men say that they move mountains. I […]

Weeping Rock

Weeping Rock

Tucked away in Zion Canyon in Zion National Park is a little alcove called Weeping Rock. This dripping alcove is home to many plants that cling to its wet surface. The hike is a short 0.2 mile hike up a paved path full of interpretive signs. The trailhead is easily found at the Weeping Rock […]

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ1000

Hiking with the Panasonic FZ1000

After hiking for miles and miles with my DSLR setup of a Canon 7D, 70-200mm 2.8L, 2X Extender, and Tokina 11-17mm, I needed something else that took great photos and video, wasn’t heavy, and didn’t take up a lot of space. I’ve been very pleased with the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000. With a 1″ sensor, […]
