Wow Tammy, what scene this is!!
The comp, colors, and detail are just superb!! #1476590

It's definitely easier to walk on the rocks than in the water...with constant fear of "oops, I slipped." :-) Another beautiful view of this iconic river, Tammy. Nicely done! #10242212

What a beautiful spot, and so well captured. I would have probably dropped my camera on a rock in the water! #10242262

I'm sort of used to that sort of terrain. That's what we have instead of a beach. Lots of rocks that want to twist under your feet. I've found that if I wear lace up shoes very loosely laced, the shoe can turn without taking your foot (and the rest of you) with it.
It works pretty well. #10242278

Very beautiful, Tammy. #10242317

Thanks Gord, Ken, Michelle, Carolyn and Bobby. Carolyn you can rent shoes special made for this type of terrain in Springdale at Zionadventures. The socks are made out of wetsuit material and keeps your feet warm. The shoes are high and help you from slipping. Highly recommended for this hike by me. $21.00 a pair.

Wonderful view Tammy! Great image! #10242464

Tammy M. Anderson level-classic 7/24/2012 7:51:41 AM

Thanks Shirley, Agnes, Stefania, Mary, Ellen and Chris. Yes, Ellen we started our hike into the narrows at 6am. When we came out about 2pm it had gotten crowded and the lighting was to harsh for photos by then. #10242474

Jack Gaskin level-classic 7/24/2012 9:39:26 AM

Sounds like a FUN FILLED VACATION and this shots a beauty. Nice going I'd be a bit more than just worried about slipping as out of the way as this obviously is.
Then again my SERIOUS HIKING DAYS are LONG OVER. :o) Even a few Magic Pain Pills could not get me through this.
Looking forward to MORE........

Beautiful Tammy. We were at Zion last summer, but my husband wasn't into this hike... so I had to forego it. #10242723

This is SO BEAUTIFUL Tammy, I love this!! <>< #10243603

frank w. degenhardt level-classic 7/25/2012 1:01:15 PM

I bet those high walls of rock made you feel so small in physical size. That would be so awesome to walk along the river, looking up at them. The earth colors are so gorgeous and you certainly let us see the beauty of this place. So pretty my friend. #10243953

Reynaldo D. Reyes level-classic 7/25/2012 9:47:43 PM
