With the towering walls of Zion mountains looming above us, Alex and Ashek and I hiked into The Narrows, a deep and narrow canyon carved by the Virgin River. Most of the hike was within the river itself, providing for a...refreshing experience. Luckily, the weather was fantastic and we stayed warm the whole day. Despite the wet, rocky river bottom, none of us had any mishaps, although we passed one fellow waiting for a search and rescue team because of an injured ankle. It being Memorial Day weekend, the hike was teeming with tourists, but we managed to enjoy the scenery nonetheless. Heading up a side canyon, we even managed to find ourselves alone for a minute or two.
