Day 5- ZION NATIONAL PARK
(Zion Narrows – Hiking)
National Geographic’s Adventure Magazine rated hiking the Virgin River Narrows in Zion number five in its list of America’s best 100 adventures. That’s where we are headed today. After getting outfitted with the appropriate gear we will set off to explore the Virgin River Narrows. The stream is our trail as we navigate our way to the mouth of Orderville Canyon. Canyon walls loom 1000ft above us and narrow as we head upstream until the water is wall to wall.
Day 6- ROCK CLIMBING
On our final day we will head to beautiful Snow Canyon State Park and take in a day of rock climbing. This place is great and houses routes that can fit anybody’s climbing abilities. We’ll settle in below a towering wall of sandstone, kick off our flatlander shoes, and gear up with harnesses, rock slippers and other shiny paraphernalia required to enter the vertical realm. We’ll teach you the basics of climbing and dispel the myths that make people think of this sport as simply nuts!
