    Zion NP, eine Perle in Utah

    June 13, 2017 in the United States

    Die Platzvergabe am Campingplatz im Zion NP funktioniert nach dem "first come, first serve" Prinzip. Das bedeutet sich am Morgen früh anstellen um einen Platz zu bekommen. Der Tip vom Ranger: ab 5:30 in der Reihe stehen macht Sinn. Gesagt - getan... wir haben Paula erklärt, dass das ein Rennen ist, das wir unbedingt gewinnen möchten... und, tadaaaa, zum ersten mal im Urlaub stellen wir uns den Wecker und sind tatsächlich die allerersten in der Reihe (und den ganzen Tag hundemüde)!!
    Hier lässt es sich wirklich gut aushalten: Ein kühler Gebirgsbach, das Ufer mit feinem Sand, viele Schatten spendende Bäume und als Kulisse Berge aus rotem Sandstein, Badetemperatur um die 30 Grad. Das ist fast kitschig... Den Tag verbrigen wir am Fluss mit Sand spielen und einer kleinen Wanderung zu den Emerald Pools. Wir sind froh unseren Stellplatz am Campingplatz ergattert zu haben und freuen uns auf die nächsten Tage hier.

    Visitor Center, Zion National Park

    August 16, 2015 in the United States

    The big kids are off hiking Angel's Landing! It's the quintesential Zion hike as you go up 1,488 vertical feet over 5 miles hiking through Walter's Wiggles, a series of switchbacks, and then walk across the "Landing" using chains bolted into the rock to help you climb the steep terrain. There are 1,200 foot drop-offs on either side as you climb! Certainly not for the faint of heart. The best part is the summit where you have 360˚ panoramas from the “Landing,” and landmarks like Big Bend, Cathedral Mountain, and Cable Mountain, as well as the Virgin River and the Great White Throne can be seen. Looking forward to hearing all about it when they return!

    Patrick and Sarah explored the campground and nearby river. Found a campervan all the way from Germany!!! See the last picture for proof. Made sure to get Zion rocks in the pic since Patrick still cannot say "Alemania" quite yet. Though he can say "ardilla" (squirrel) quite well! Grampy, does Germany earn more? $5? They did have to bring their vehicle across the Atlantic Ocean!

    A perfect morning in Zion!

    Angel's Landing Hike

    March 5, 2016 in the United States

    Really good hike, but holy tons of people. Found out later this is the most popular hike in Zion, and that like 6 people have died on the trail in the last decade. Awesome. We actually started with the Emerald Pools Trail, and kind of wandered onto to this trail by accident. Steep climbs and switchbacks, really challenging. The trail is partially paved, and you wouldn't really even need boots. But then at the top, there's an extra half mile climb that is really hairy. Actually the climb itself wouldn't be so terrible, but there are people like ants all over it, and everyone is trying to climb the same route, along chains you can hold for balance. We started up, but quickly saw how dangerous it was to pass people going up and down, so we turned back. After reading about all the accidents up there, back at the hotel room, I'm glad we did. Still a great hike up to that point.Read more

    Zion National Park

    October 15, 2017 in the United States

    Heute sind wir im Zion NP angekommen. Hier ist es voll! Der Ort vorm Parkeingang ist ein richtiges Touristenferiendorf. Das gab es in den anderen Parks nicht. Krass!

    Wir haben einen Campingplatz im Nationalpark gefunden. Hier ist es grün, schattig, nicht so voll und wunderschön. Die Jungs haben den Nachmittag damit verbracht im eiskalten Virgin River kleine Staudämme zu bauen. Morgen geht es dann auf Wandertour.Read more
