Grand Canyon and Zion

On September 8th, we drove down to the north rim of the Grand Canyon.

The views were incredible

The next day we drove to Zion National Park. We parked outside the park and rode the visitor’s shuttle in. Natalie and I decided to hike the Emerald Pool and Kayenta Trails to do a nice loop. Sully did a great job and hiked 50% of the trail. People passing by were really impressed.

Our next hike took us up to Weeping Rock where water drains out through the middle of a sheer rock wall.

Sully walked the entire mile trail back to the start barefoot (tiptoe as he calls it). Once we took his shoes off at the waterfront he didn’t want to put them back on, and he actually walked the whole way back!
