With our free Delta tickets, we flew to Salt Lake City, and rented The Westy, and drove all over Utah!

Entering Zion National Park.
Monday, hiking Angels Landing - strenuous climb. Narrow route with cliff exposures. Hazardous.
Joe at the base of the Angel's Landing hike.
Note the switchbacks, and the tiny people dead center of the photo.
Looking down on the first half of our Angel's Landing hike.
Every 10 feet is another switchback!
When the drop off gets serious, they give us a chain to hold on to.
This is not the top yet.
Joe and Sherry at the top of Angel's Landing.
A waterfall coming down into one of the Emerald Pools.
Tuesday, we hike the Narrows, properly outfitted!
You can see the tiny people in the distance, for perspective.
A typical view of the Narrows.
The walls close in.
The walls can be 1000 feet high. You must notice where you can escape to high (6 feet up) ground.
When the current was fast, the cameras were put away.
It got this deep, in pools. Not quite this deep in fast water.
Mystery Falls in the background.
Hikers were here.
Weird rock formations seen along the narrows.
Weird people in rock formations along the narrows.
Joe is in his element.
Self portrait - the end of the Narrows.
The rock formations in Utah are bizarre and amazing!
A hoodoo in Bryce.
Sand dunes become rock.
You can tell which way the wind blew way back then.
Some rocks look like mosaics.
This one is called checkerboard rock.
Water runs quickly through limestone. When it hits harder rock, it traverses horizontally, and seeps out the edges. The water seeping out here is rain that fell during the middle ages. !!!
Check out which way the wind blew on all those sand dunes!
More evidence of winds on the sand dunes.
Layers upon layers of rock.
Rock layers everywhere.
Our favorite rock view. In the evening.
We drove up these faint switchbacks to enter the tunnel completed in 1930.
