Hiking the Narrows

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Hiking the Narrows
Hiking the Narrows
Zion National park, Utah. The Narrows is one of the most unusal hikes in the Colorado Plateau. Hiking in the Virgin river for a third of the hike, the river runs canyon wall to canyon wall. Most hikers will wade waist deep a few times. We hiked 3 mile in reaching what they call Wall street. A tripod is needed due to low light and a walking stick. Get an early start to avoid people. The man in the picture is a friend we meet up with there. Hiking the Narrows is rated #5 in the National Geographic ranking of Americas best 100 adventures.

    SWEET CATCH Love the look down in the gorge. Sounds like a great stroll if a bit difficult BUT does it get that CROWDED ???

Looks like the water level was good, which is sooooo much easier to walk in. It is a cool walk..and hopefully you did Angels Landing too! Beautiful scene, Tammy!

Nice capture and the other photographer gives it some scale, Tammy! Wouldn't want it to rain while I was in there.

You should know how many times I've read hiker's accounts of this hike...and planned...and dreamed! What an amazing adventure you must have had doing this! Great perspective - the addition of your friend adds a fantastic sense of scale - love the lighting contrasts and wonderful detail accomplished in this difficult lighting situation! (I'm trying to imagine hiking with camera bag, tripod, walking stick, etc., etc in both water and this rough terrain....think I'll need to hire a COUPLE of fitness experts before I attempt!) :) :) Excellent shot, Tammy!

WOW This is really beautiful, Tammy. I have been so busy and I see that I have missed a lot. I bet this was a pure joy to hike down.

Beautiful work in every way, Tammy! I'd love to get there some day! Beautiful depth and color, once again! It must have been very hot while you were there, at least by late morning! Great image!

Several years back, I rafted 95 miles in the Grand Canyon and took many side hiking trips. This brings back memories. Thanks for posting your adventure!

Wonderful composition where the water leads the eye through the frame. The person on the image gives wonderful size perspective.
