    Planning to go in August. Would it be feasible to do Narrows (to Wall Street), Observation Point, and Canyon Overlook in one day?

  2. BR on June 15, 2020 at 5:53 pm

    Great info. Thank you. Btw, how do you like your backpack strap camera clip? Does it seem awkward there?

  3. Azrvy on June 15, 2020 at 5:53 pm

    My uncle works at Zion and I went that’s a few years ago. I’m from Missouri. I actually have one of his old uniforms

  4. Susan iovino on June 15, 2020 at 5:54 pm

    Excellent video!!! I have hiked several of the trails and they are all beautiful. You are so right about Angel Landing being dangerous. Many years ago a co worker fell to her death on that hike while her husband was taking a photo of her against the backdrop. Be very careful and take your time on that particular trail. Happy hiking…

  5. Xavier Whatisit on June 15, 2020 at 5:54 pm

    nice job! visit my channel i also made an USA Trip video : @

  6. kstars on June 15, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    Just perfect. Thank you for taking the time to make this video!

  7. Cris Garcia on June 15, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    Great Video! I’ve been there a couple of times and your description just adds more value to the experience. Appreciate it 🙂

  8. dcpunk4 on June 15, 2020 at 5:58 pm

    What time of the year did you guys go (specifically the narrows)? I see you were wearing shorts. Wondering just how cold the water will be when I go at the end of this month (Oct).

  9. Trip Astute on June 15, 2020 at 5:59 pm

    Have you been to Zion National Park? If so, what was your favorite hike? 😎

  10. Another dude on June 15, 2020 at 6:01 pm

    How was the narrows with your camera we are going to Zion at the end of the week and i have a dslr and 4 lenses I usually carry with me any suggestions?

  11. Erik Egon Geertsen on June 15, 2020 at 6:02 pm

    Thank you very much for all the information. I’m visiting Zion park in March and the main issue that I have is time. I don’t have much so I have to choose just one hike because i got to be in Vegas by 17:30m – 18:00. I’m thinking about doing angels landing early in the morning.. What would you recommend me? I’m staying in Springdale.

  12. Lauren Henley on June 15, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    I REEEEEALLY want to gooo 🙁 I live in the UK

  13. Jamia Ahmad on June 15, 2020 at 6:04 pm

    This video helped so much! Thank you! What are the spots that must not be missed while visiting Zion national park? We are planning a trip there but we have time constraints. We probably will have only 3-4 hours for this place. And we will have elderly people with us. So hiking is not an option! What will you recommend given our circumstances?

  14. Elculano ponte on June 15, 2020 at 6:05 pm

    will crocs shoes work for the narrows?

  15. Randy Charlton on June 15, 2020 at 6:06 pm

    like to know about the Tripod rules. Can you take one? Can you take one but only use it in certain parts of the park?

  16. Brent O'Dell on June 15, 2020 at 6:07 pm

    My wife and I are going there in Feb 2020, I’m curious how much snow/ice you saw when you were there in 2017? Thanks for the informative video!

  17. ROMEO ERIC on June 15, 2020 at 6:07 pm

    Thanks for sharing this video….lots of helpful information.

  18. Nicole Jarel on June 15, 2020 at 6:07 pm

    My favorite hike so far was Angels Landing! Going back this summer to do the Narrows

  19. renou skinner on June 15, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    Very helpful. Planning to go there next year in August. Thank you!

  20. anne marie conrod on June 15, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    We traveled to Utah National Arches with our six year old and did several moderate hikes which yield some awesome views. There was snow and lots of people which took away some enjoyment. We will try and visit on a less crowded time of year if there is such a thing!
    Overall we loved Utah National Arches very much. Josh, Annemarie and Logan.

  21. Pete 379 on June 15, 2020 at 6:16 pm

    How much is the permit for the subway?

  22. Jane Washington on June 15, 2020 at 6:19 pm

    We travel to Zion most years. We plan w.a.y ahead and make reserves at the Zion Lodge in Zion. Just pick a date and remember you can always cancel. (Most National Parks now are up to a year out for reserves.). That has some GREAT advantages: 1). You can drive right to the lodge and park there. You are given a hang permit for your car, which you show when entering the canyon. 2). At about 5 pm most of the tourists leave to go to Springdale for dinner and sleep and you basically have the whole canyon to yourself! It’s amazing to walk around then, bike, short hikes (depending on the amount of light left…not much in the fall but you have the whole day there for longer hikes.). 3) Watching the sun go down inside those big mountains is just magic. 4) Dinner at the lodge is great!! Best times to go: March/April, September/October

  23. JaxBespoked on June 15, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    Two More Tips: -Avoid the Summer season -Visit the Kolab Canyons section of the park

  24. Gary Day on June 15, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    Wow. Being absolute novice but enthused wannabe hikers, we’ve watched A LOT of videos from….well, the usual suspects. Your video was so informative yet succinct, most impressive; thank you for providing it. I’ll subscribe to your channel!!

  25. Julian Nichols on June 15, 2020 at 6:21 pm

    Great info! planning to go Fall 2020.

  26. Our Life At Play on June 15, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    Great video, beautiful footage, and really helpful. Zion is high on our to do list when we make it over to the states

  27. Rodney Harla on June 15, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    I noticed you had your camera strapped to the front of your chest. Where can I get one of those? I own a Canon 70D & that would come in handy

  28. Pat Stokes on June 15, 2020 at 6:26 pm

    I was raised in you and visited the parks back in the 50’s and 60’s, that was when the population was rather low and an outdoor adventure not a popular so you could go their with no reservations, no crowds. Most parks were out of the way and hiking was really at your own risk. No signs, no warnings no holding your hand. Moab as a sleepy town that a drive in restaurant was about as good as it got. Sad to see it go but now I’m 70 and don’t plan on those kind of adventures.

  29. Joe on June 15, 2020 at 6:27 pm

    You’ve got to return and do the Subway from top down sometime. It makes the hike about 10x more epic.

  30. Amy Benoit on June 15, 2020 at 6:27 pm

    Great video!

  31. Daniel von Bose on June 15, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    I like the lower emerald pool hike, no chains just switchbacks on some of it. I hope to do the upper pool.

  32. Fernando Bustos-Escobar on June 15, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    Best video I’ve seen so far about Zion. I will be going there for my birthday in June this year but I’m already planning. This video was very informative thank you so much for making it. Great Video!

  33. Mike Malloy on June 15, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    very good. I am going in June to photograph.

  34. Lauren Henley on June 15, 2020 at 6:30 pm

    I REEEEEALLY want to gooo 🙁 I live in the UK

  35. julinas.travellife on June 15, 2020 at 6:30 pm

    Angels Landing 🙂 It was awesome!

  36. Urmi Manzoor on June 15, 2020 at 6:31 pm

    Thanks for share

  37. Christy Boyle on June 15, 2020 at 6:31 pm

    We are going to Zion this year. Do you have a hiking backpack recommendation?

  38. Trevor Costelloe on June 15, 2020 at 6:31 pm

    Went to zion in december 2017 and did angels landing as well as the emerald pools, but that was it. Going back in a few days to hit up overlook trail, upper emerald pools, and the narrows, as well as whatever looks interesting while we are there 🙂 as well as observation point from East Mesa since the main trail is closed

  39. Solitary on June 15, 2020 at 6:32 pm

    Such a helpful video. I’m gonna go to Zion tomorrow

  40. Mr. Elastomeric1 on June 15, 2020 at 6:34 pm

    What are your thoughts on June or July travel ace video

  41. michaelclld on June 15, 2020 at 6:36 pm

    Is Vegas the closet airport? I think I want to fly in there come this spring and camo here a couple day

  42. Theresa Cuomo on June 15, 2020 at 6:37 pm

    Great video, best we’ve seen of Zion. We’re planning a trip to Zion in March and found your video very helpful!

  43. Jane Washington on June 15, 2020 at 6:42 pm

    There is so much information about deaths on Angel’s Landing. A few years ago, a young teen boy slipped, fell, and died. We were next to a group of rangers who “deconstructed” the accident ( we overheard them) and what actually happened was this kid was jumping from rock to rock on the most technical part, turned his ankle and fell. Jumping!! Not exactly what was reported. That isn’t to make light of his death, but he didn’t just “fall” off. The idea is to be slow and smart. If heights bother you, don’t go. If you’re very out of shape, don’t go. If you’re exhausted when you get to the steep part, go the other way (there is a fork in the trail there).

  44. Genesis Zamora-Mena on June 15, 2020 at 6:42 pm

    Going there in March and this video was so helpful!

  45. weyousee on June 15, 2020 at 6:42 pm

    Your effort is very helpful. The entire content was crisp and clean. Well done.

  46. Xe Yang on June 15, 2020 at 6:44 pm

    What is the best times to go to Zain National park please lets me know. Because we’re plans to go this summer.

  47. Colby Clay on June 15, 2020 at 6:44 pm

    Just to add something about angels landing: if you are doing the hike during cooler months, I highly recommend bringing gloves for the sections with chains! The metal gets very cold and can be uncomfortable to hold on to without them

  48. Peachy Planner on June 15, 2020 at 6:48 pm

    Great video!! We are going in late April 2020, how is the weather at that time?

  49. Change Your Frequency on June 15, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    Awesome video. Looks amazing! We are going next week. Would you recommend spending longer here than Bryce? So far we are spending 3 nights in each location. Zion looks more my style. Love to be near water. Thanks in advance!

  50. Lulu on June 15, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    Mess with nature at your own risk.
