Nice weather, no crowds, totally mellow. Stayed in an old cabin at Jacob Lake (~45 min away). Did a pretty mellow hike to Cape Final (4 miles round trip) which offered an incredible view of the canyon... however, a thunderstorm was approaching and the end of the hike is the highest point in the area... got the fvck down from there quick. Turned out there was some sleet back on the roads and the road we came up on was closed (and a hell of a mess) on the way back down.

Was my first time in Zion and loved it. Hiked almost 3 miles back in the Narrows--incredible. Didn't take our cameras cause we didn't want to get wet since you're walking in a stream the entire time, but here's some google photos. Would like to hike Angels Landing next time I'm there.





The Narrows is insane! jam_on

President Obama designated a large swath of Maines North Woods as a new national monument Wednesday, creating what is likely to be the last large new national park ever established on the East Coast.

In a statement, the White House said the move aimed to honor the National Park Services centennial, which will take place Thursday. The move occurred almost exactly 100 years after President Woodrow Wilson established Sieur de Monts National Monument, which eventually became Maines sole existing national park, Acadia.

Great shots everyone! Makes me realize I need to get outside more!

While not strictly a national park, I thiought this good news belongs in this celebratory thread:


Obama creates the largest protected place on the planet, off Hawaii

"President Obama on Friday created the largest ecologically protected area on the planet when he expanded a national marine monument off the coast of his native Hawaii to encompass more than half a million square miles.

The president more than quadrupled the size of the Papahanaumokuakea (pronounced Papa-ha-now-moh-koo-ah-kay-ah) Marine National Monument to 582,578 square miles of land and sea in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands ................. "

Damn CA fires. Road, camping and trail closures and evacuations. Drove about halfway and talked with a friend near this weekend's destination. Turned around and headed back home. toilet

Hey Joshua, great pics. On your first set of pics, which psychedelic hot caldron is that? That thing looks great. My trip is expanding to add Yellowstone, Mesa Verde, and maybe even The Grand Canyon. I'd love to score a permit to hike to The Wave way down south, but I'm not holding my breath. Good times this fall.

Thanks! It's the Grand Prismatic Spring in the Midway Geyser Basin just a few miles north of Old Faithful. I climbed the hill across the valley to get a better view from up on the cliff...well worth the short, steep hike.

Have a great trip and good luck with the permit.

cheers
