Zion National Park

Angels Landing Trail

Very overcast day, making pictures difficult.
The trail begins at the Grotto Picnic Area, from along the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. The shuttle system is in full effect until October 28, which means that you can't drive your car down the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive.
Don't expect a quick drive either, the pace is very slow and relaxed.

A wide angle view, looking south from the entrance into Refrigerator Canyon,
down Zion National Park from the Angels Landing Trail.
Red Arch Mountain is in the center.

Creeping around the overhung corner.

This section is known as "Walters Wiggles"

An old tree atop Scout Lookout between Angels Landing
and the West Rim.

The Angels Landing Trail to Angels Landing, behind is The Great White Throne.
There are chains to hold on to all the way up this ridge.
Many people were death-gripping the chains all the way up and down this.
We tried to make it up without touching the chains - it wasn't hard,
we went up most of it without even using our hands.

Looking west toward the Organ, Observation Point, and Cable Mountain.
The crack on the right is Hidden Canyon.

Some of the chains along the thin ridge up Angels Landing, behind is Cable Mountain

Looking north toward the Narrows and Observation Point
from the top of Angels Landing,
from here we could have seen Brandon and Nick
aid climbing up Moonlight Buttress on the left wall.

Looking east over the Organ toward Observation Point and Echo Canyon.

From the top looking South down Zion Canyon
and the North Fork of the Virgin River.

Special thanks to Denyse
