    I just found your channel…love it! I was at Zion in early June and did the Narrows, Angel's Landing, Watchman and a few others. Dang…it was hot! Looks like the weather was a little chilly when you were there in March. I'm really looking forward to seeing your video(s) from your Yosemite hike. I'm heading there next weekend (8/16) and hoping to hike to Clouds Rest if the Ferguson Fire doesn't smoke me out. Fingers crossed. I'm looking forward to checking out your other videos!

    Zion really looks awesome, thanks for the videos guys. I just don't know if I could tolerate the people, lines, buses, the people, oh or all the people LOL. Great job on the video as always, really appreciate all the background info about the places you go.

    Great video Jim and Jeremy! And love your intro Lance! We had to skip this hike for many reasons so it was great to discover it through your lens and comments. Looks amazing! What a week you had! Fantastic achievement and memories. Well done! 👍👍

    Great video! Zion was one of the places we used to visit a lot when I was growing up. Brings back really good memories for me. Of course, those were the days before the shuttle buses. Looking forward to your Yosemite trip too.

    Another great video guys. Thanks for letting me do your intro. Zion is such a beautiful place I get to see through your videos. You two always do a great job with narration, editing and music. Have a great time in Yosemite. I am looking forward to seeing the places you visit on your backpacking trip.

    Hey J and J, it’s always fun seeing you guys go to places we’ve been before. We did Zion back in October and did this same hike at the very end of the day and had to run back to not miss the last shuttle back down the hill. I gotta admit the shuttle busses were a bit of a shock for us after having been backpacking in Utah just prior. But we understand the benefits of the shuttles. Still it was a culture shock having to wait in lines and then stuff ourselves into seats. Did you guys make it to the brewery just outside the park?
