The Slickrock

 After we hiked the Narrows at Zion, we drove trough the famous tunnel to the east side of the park. Bruce's grandfather actually helped build this tunnel, so the family connection was neat.
 The east side of Zion is mostly petrified sand dunes or slickrock.
 We hiked to an overlook of the canyon. No one told me there would be cave trolls lurking around corners!
 Big Horn Sheep live on this side of the park. Brian is doing his best imitation of the sheep that you can kind of see in the top right corner of the picture.
 Five minutes later, there was a goat right next to the trail.
On our way out of the park we stopped to see ancient Indian petroglyfs.
By then we were tired, but hiking had been a great way to spend some time together!


  1. looks like a fun place to hike!

  2. Pete's doing a pretty good imitation there, but has he perfected the Antler Dance?
