Last April I made a week-long sojourn to Zion National Park in Utah. We camped at the Watchman Camp ground.
On the first days hike we rode the shuttle bus up the valley…
and hiked up to Angle’s Landing.
The hike is about 2 miles and 1,600 ft of elevation gain. The hike takes you up a series of switchbacks and then through Echo Canyon.
More steep switchbacks leave you on a plateau where you can catch your breath before the last steep pitch along a knife’s edge to the top…
The view down the valley is breathtaking.
The Watchman provided a sweet backdrop for the stars at night.
