    Zion Nationalpark

    September 9, 2017 in the United States

    Von Las Vegas aus ging es weiter Richtung Nordosten in den Zion Nationalpark. Auf der Strecke gab es nur sehr wenige Ortschaften in der kargen Landschaft. Was bei den Amerikanern auch nicht unüblich zu sein scheint, ist, dass das Auto einfach an das Wohnmobil gehängt wird oder dass der Wohnwagen auf der Ladefläche des Pick-ups befestigt ist. In Springdale parkten wir unser Auto und fuhren mit dem kostenlosen Shuttlebus in den Nationalpark. Am Eingang kauften wir uns einen Jahrespass für alle Nationalparks in den USA für $ 80. Schon während der Busfahrt sah man wie sich der Virgin River durch den Nationalpark schlängelt und zwischen den über 900m hohen Felswänden fließt. Der Fluss begann vermutlich schon vor 13 Mio. Jahren sich durch das Gestein zu fräsen und den Canyon zu formen. Am Felsmonument Temple of Sinawava war Endstation für den Bus. Von dort aus machten wir eine Wandertour zu den Narrows. Mit dem Wetter hatten wir Glück, da die Tour nach Regenfällen oder Gewitter lebensgefährlich werden kann.Read more

    Zion National Park

    July 9, 2017 in the United States

    People have told us that Zion National Park is like no other place in the world. Though our worldly travels are somewhat limited, it certainly doesn't compare to any of the places we have visited. We are amazed at how unique each of the National Parks have been and Zion is no exception. At Bryce Canyon, we were constantly looking down at the beautiful views while here were are looking up. The biggest difference here is that there is water and therefore green vegetation. Because cars are not allowed to drive through the park except to get from the east entrance to the south entrance, everyone takes shuttle buses. We decided to take the shuttle to it's last stop where we did the Riverside Walk which brought us to the beginning to the Narrows trail. This trail is literally a hike up in the river up through the narrow mountain passes. We didn't actually do this hike as it's long and very intense. Our next stop on the shuttle was the Weeping Rock Trail. Because the moisture travels down the rocks, at this spot the rocks have a steady stream of water drizzling down which felt good in the heat. We took the shuttle back to our campground at this point to make lunch, do laundry and to use the pool. The scenery at the pool and our campsite makes us feel like we are in the middle of Zion and not outside of it. Tomorrow we're planning on another hike to the Emerald Falls and then packing up for the trip to the Grand Canyon.Read more

    Zion National Park

    August 9, 2015 in the United States

    En ny dag, en ny nationalpark. Selvom vi hver dag besøger en ny nationalpark, forundres vi over hvor forskellige og imponerende de hver især er. Zion Nationalpark ligger i ørkenen, men er meget grøn og har et rigt dyreliv. Man må (heldigvis) ikke køre i bil i størstedel af parken, så vi kørte rundt i shuttlebusser.
    Vi gik i dag 3 ture i bjergene: Den første ind til et vandfald, den anden dybt ind i en kløft og den sidste var en stejl tur op på toppen af en høj klippe, som nok ville have gjort nogle mødre nervøse. Men det var skrækken og sveden værd, for udsigten var så smuk. Vi er begge to meget glade for at hike i bjergene og vi får mange kilometer i benene sådan en dag.
    Både Glenn Canyon NP, Zion NP og de kommende dages Bryce Canyon NP og Arches NP ligger på det samme plateau: Colorado-plateauet, så vi skal heldigvis ikke køre mere end nogle timer mellem parkerne. Det er meget heldigt, for vi er typisk først på vores hotel efter kl 22. Vækkeuret ringer tidligt næste morgen, så vi sover ikke ferien væk!
