The first thing I will say is switch the video quality to the highest size possible. 1440 or 1080p on a mobile device, or definitely 4k on your desktop. It makes all the difference.
Angel’s Landing will be the scariest hike ever if you are afraid of heights. If you are not, then it is a definite bucket list hike. It is so beautiful. It is only about 2.2 miles to the top. The views, the rock stair cases, and the impossibly growing trees are amazing.
The first mile and a half is pretty much paved trail. There are a lot of switchbacks the higher you get. Once at the top of the main trail, you will see the razorback and the beginning of the chain section. It is less than a mile to the top. There are a couple of sections where there is no chain. I tried to show as much of the trail as possible. There are some steeper sections to climb near the top. Definitely use the chains to pull yourself up. Once at the top, there are plenty of areas to rest and take some amazing photos.
If you are planning to take this hike, there are a couple of things you should bring. Gloves will make the climb much easier and will slide along the chain better. Also, bring plenty of water and snacks. There is no water on this trail. There is a bathroom just before the Chain part of the climb. Also, it can get pretty windy near the peak, so a wind breaker or jacket might be useful. Lastly, you should start as early as possible. The chain sections can get pretty busy in the summer time. You will be getting up close and personal with some strangers holding on to that chain.
Take your time, take lots of pictures, and have a great time.

REACTION MATTERS PRESENTS: Kid Couldn’t Get Out Of Quicksand In Time, Then Hikers Make A Terrifying Discovery
When you think of going on a nature adventure, your mind typically will gravitate towards positive things like the scenery, wildlife, etc. But nature is one of the most unpredictable things on this planet, even the smallest and seemingly most insignificant factors can end up deciding anything and everything. What starts off as a harmless nature-filled adventure could end up turning out to be one of the biggest mistakes that end up costing you everything.
A 34-year-old Arizona man decided to take a trip with his son to Zion National Park located in the US state of Utah. The two decided that it would be a great place to go hiking. It would be their first time at Zion National Park, but the two were relatively experienced hikers. They weren’t beginners, but they were quite far from being hiking experts. There would be a snowstorm in the area a few days after their trip was scheduled to be ending, but since they decided to go days before, there was plenty of time for them to carry out their hiking adventure the way they had planned.
After hiking for about half the day, the father and son reached a stopping point that they were comfortable with. They had planned to stop here for the day, relax, and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful landscape the park had to offer. The son asked his father if he could venture off by himself for a bit since there was still quite a bit of daylight left. The father gave him the ok, as long as he promised to not go off too far away from camp. The son of course obliged and set off by himself to take some pictures and to see if he could find anything else interesting.
A few hours later, the son still hadn’t returned to camp. His father was growing increasingly worried as there were only a couple more hours of daylight left, it would be extremely difficult to find the way back to camp in the dark. He tried calling his son’s cell phone on the off chance that cellular service could be obtained, but to no one’s there was no service to be had. The father decided that he would try to find his son by searching the areas close to the camp, and if he couldn’t find his son after that, he would venture down the trail where they originally came from and see if he could call for help. After no luck finding his missing son, the father began venturing back up the path in an effort to either get service on his cell phone, or find somebody that could call for help for him.
After quite a ways up the trail, the father finally came across a park ranger building. He explained the situation to one of the park rangers, then the ranger used a landline to call for a search party. Unfortunately, by the time the search party would be able to make it out, it would be dark outside. This meant that wherever the son was, he would have to be able to hold out until the next day when it was light enough to effectively search for him. The father didn’t like that idea, but it was the only realistic option he had to choose from.
When the morning finally came, the search party arrived and began searching for the missing son. The father was hanging on to hope that his son was able to find a way to make it so that he could safely last through the night. The park got extremely cold at night and the wildlife is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Hope was all the father had, so he tried to keep his outlook on the situation as positive as possible.
Within 2 hours of the search party beginning their search, it had begun to snow. The snow had arrived earlier than anticipated due to strong winds blowing it closer to its destination than originally predicted. This was yet another thing working against the father and his missing son.
An hour or so after the snow began to fall, one of the search party groups located the missing son. They were terrified to find the son buried up to his head in quicksand. Luckily since it was much colder that day than it was the previous day, the quicksand had essentially frozen and the son wasn’t sinking any deeper into it. Unfortunately, since the quicksand had grown so firm and even partly frozen, getting the son out of it was going to be a difficult challenge. Unable to get the son out of the quicksand, the search party and father had no choice but to set up a camp around where the son was, and try to get him out the next day when the temperature was supposed to be warmer.
