We get wet and sandy as we canyoneer Pine Creek in Zion National Park, Utah. The water was low on our run through the canyon and had it been higher Pine Creek would be a different animal. Getting off rope in the water was easy since we could touch and we never really got cold but for a few minutes after the third rappel. Great trip and beautiful scenery. I will say that it was full of sand and that did complicate a few things, mainly binding up the locking biners on our devices. All things said, Awesome! Thanks for watching!

What an awesome canyon! We hit Spry Canyon right at the end of October for a great day. It hadn’t rained for quite some time so we decided to not bring wetsuits and we were able to dodge all water except for one little section which was about waist deep. Lots of great rappels in Spry. I do believe that this canyon is now one of my favorites! Book Today & Save on Zion National Park Vacation Rentals

Taylor Creek Middle Fork Trail – Zion National Park
Taylor Creek Trail is located on the NE portion of Zion National Park. It’s a moderately traveled 2 mile out and back trail that ends in a huge alcove. The hike features two cabins and multiple stream crossings. If you have gone to Zion before, Taylor Creek and the Kolob Canyon area is fairly remote compared to the more popular attractions. It is easy to overlook which is good (lower traffic) and bad (people miss the scenic drive and the canyon itself). If you have spare time and want something different than the ‘standard’ hikes (Angel’s Landing, Canyon Overlook, Emerald Pools, etc.), take a drive up to Kolob Canyon and check out one (or all three) of the Taylor Creek trails.

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.

Here is a video from when I made a quick stop at Zion on the way back to Vegas. The timewarp is from the east side entry. I checked out a few water features caused from a recent rainfall. The coolest waterfall was the 1,000+ fall coming off of the Sentinel. What a beautiful park. Book Today & Save on Zion National Park Vacation Rentals
Here is a video from when I hiked down The Narrows at Zion National Park and checked out Orderville Slot canyon. All in all, I did a 9-mile hike through the frigid 40-degree water of the Virgin River, as I passed several waterfalls, floating rock, grottos, and Wall Street. What a beautiful hike.
