Angels Landing

We're back from a lovely family holiday centered around Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. It was awesome! I highly recommend a visit.

Angels Landing

Highlights included:

Of course, what I will remember most clearly is the amazing view from Angels Landing. Hiking the narrow rock fin with dizzying drop-offs on both sides was among the most terrifying and most fun experiences of my life.

So, please do tell, where should we go next year?

Peter, try Yellowstone and Grand Tetons if you haven't been already. Otherwise, the other corner of Utah is also nice, with Arches and Canyonlands. Capitol Reef is also neat with all the rock art. For a road trip from there, head down to Monument Valley, four corners and then Mesa Verde. The cliff dwellings there are amazing. - Jim

Those are some great suggestions. Thanks Jim!

In the meantime, I've assigned myself the task of watching the entire 12-hour, six-part documentary series by Ken Burns about our national parks:

I already watched the first two parts and found them truly inspiring.
