In the Zion park, you can only take shuttles to different stops that are close to different hiking trails unless you have a permit for private vehicle. We decided to hike the Weeping Rock trail first which was the second last stop on the hiking trail map. The name was so poetic that I had to see it. The trail was easy. It was only about 0.4 miles and the elevation change was about 100 feet.
It was a great decision to start with this trail because my hiking experience was close to zero. I thought of it was a warm up for the second trail of the day.
There was a guy playing drum. The sound bounced back and forth between the cliffs and created an echo effect. I felt like I was in some kind of tribal ceremony.
There were lizards everywhere! I guess they could easily survive in deserted environments because they could blend in so well with the background.
I loved having lunch by a random stream we found. Even trail mix became the most delicious food in the world. :)
