Parks & Camping Places of Interest Travel

Zion in a day.

We are headed out early from our boondocking spot to spend the day in Zion National Park. It is a sunny mid – April day and the park isn’t crowded. We find RV parking to be abundant. Later, on the shuttle bus we see a lot of parking space available at the individual trail heads. Surely this will change soon as the season is about to start.

Since we decided to spend only one day here, well realizing we would miss out on the most awesome hikes, we figued we could do several trails at an easy pace and so off we went.

We took the shuttle bus to the very last stop and started to work our way back.

The first trail at the Temple of Sinawava was the Riverside walk which took us through a small canyon to the beginning of The Narrows.

Next up was Weeping Rock, a short but steep walk to – obviously – a “weeping rock”.

Back on the shuttle we got off at The Grotto, where the Kayenta Trail, Upper and Lower Pool Trail and the Zion Lodge Trail, which we took.

All in all we had a nice day out here and we will likely be back to do the longer and more spectacular trails, because there is no way one can do “Zion in a Day”.
