Zion National Park is one of the most incredible places I have ever been. The beauty is jaw dropping and the various hikes are seemingly endless. You can hike through the Narrows (blog coming soon on this!), hike up Canyon Overlook Trail, hike the Watchman Trail, hike Observation Point Trail, hike up the infamous Angels Landing, or hike any of the other many trails.
I began my hike from the Hualapai Hilltop parking lot around 5 AM. The trail starts off going down a series of switchbacks where you descend around 1,000 feet in the first mile or so. Almost immediately I ran into my first obstacle; four horses, two of which were babies. The trail was quite narrow, so I made sure not to get too close to the horses as they were slowly walking down in front of me.
Welcome to my new photography blog! This week's post is all about what you need to pack for a backpacking trip to Havasu Falls, located on the Havasupai Indian Reservation in northwest Arizona. Part II next week will go into detail about the actual hike and all the different waterfalls you can see while you are down there.
