Southwest: The Narrows

We had a fantastic experience trekking through Zion National Park's crown-jewel trail. The Narrows a 16 mile stretch of the Virgin River that creates a stunning slot canyon. The reflected light from the canyon walls into the riverbed is enough to make any photographer go bananas, and the trail is basically the river itself.
In places the water reached well up to our chest. At times it was best just to swim. Truly a grand adventure. Gotta trust those dry bags! This was my first slot canyon, and it won't be the last.
