Spent the day in Zion.  We hiked to all 3 Emerald Pools, then looped up to the Grotto.  Had some lunch then hiked the Narrows path until we hit water.  We are going to do the water portion tomorrow.

Probably hiked 6-7 miles today.

Today was "Narrows" day at Zion.  We rented our chest waders and water shoes and hiked (waded) up several miles past Orderville canyon.  It was Amazing!

6 miles of hiking/wading today.

Sue wasn't feeling well for most of the day so we hung around camp until later in the afternoon.  We walked about 2 miles out and back to a dinner show at Ebenezer's.  Great food and a Country Music show!

Since Sue wasn't feeling well yesterday we did our hike down in to Bryce Canyon this morning.  We did the Queen's loop and then the Navajo Loop and came back up Wall street.  Another Amazing day!

After that we drove Highway 12 though Grand Staircase/Escalante and up to Capitol Reef National Park.  We went to the vistors center then went and viewed the Petroglyphs on the canyon walls on the Fremont River.

Got up early so we would have some time to hike/sightsee in Capitol Reef.  Saw the Western side of the Waterpocket fold.  Did a small bit of hiking, then drove the 200 miles back home.....tired.
