I just got back from a quick trip down to Zion National Park in southern Utah. It was great to be back down there again. Walking through the different parts of the parks was incredible. Hiked Angel’s Landing and the Narrows. Met people from across America, Europe, Australia and Asia. There were several times when I’d just look up and around and stand transfixed by the sheer beauty of the place. Those moments of being left speechless, constantly looking in every direction, desperately trying to take it all in. It reminds me of a line from a poem by Robert Bridges, “thou shalt taste nothing but sweetness, and shalt grow half sad for sweetness run to waste.” At night, we slept under the stars looking up at meteors burning up as they fell toward earth.
All I have to say is, if you’ve never been to Zion National Park, it needs to go onto your bucket list of places to visit before you die. Thanks to Patrick Tatman for the awesome photo.
