Since I picked up a camera back in September of 2015, I've always been fascinated with Bryce Canyon National Park. It may be small in size but the views are incredibly vast. Located just 50 miles away from Zion National park in the southwestern part of Utah. Elevation at the rim varies between 8,000 and 9,000 feet. Even though it is not a canyon, Bryce is known for its amphitheaters of hoodoos that have been formed over millions of years of erosion.
Hello world, It has been a while since my last post. I have been doing way too much exploring and traveling and not enough writing to tell you about my travels. I recently just finished a 15 day, 5501-mile road trip across western America, Alberta, and British Columbia with my awesome and beautiful girlfriend Kelle (she started a new Instagram so go check her out and give her a follow) to commemorate our 1 year anniversary. Last year we road tripped up to Oregon for 6 days so we thought, why the hell not and go bigger this time. That we did indeed.
Zion is an adventurer's paradise with tons of hiking, canyoneering, and sightseeing everywhere you go. Angels Landing was a hike we had to do along with a few others we had in mind. It is voted one of the most dangerous hikes in America. Danger you say? I like to live on the edge so why the hell not and defy death on this stunning yet dangerous hike?
Its 4pm. It's about time we get started. It's time to hike Angels Landing, one of the most scenic hikes with the best views of zion national park. As we took the shuttle to weeping rock where our trailhead was. Known for being one of the most dangerous hikes in the world because of the 10" path with just a chain to hold onto with a 1000 foot drop off cliff. Here I am, halfway to the top of angels landing. Holding onto chain rails for dear life as I look either to my right or left, it's a frightening thousand plus feet drop on either side. I can see the tiny little shuttle buses on the road and people look like ants. Time to continue. Another break. Wow this is exhausting,but the mission must continue. It's always nice to have small talk with the random travelers. Just talked to some people from Montana doing a thirty day adventure which was pretty sweet. Finally made it to the top! I'm exhausted but it was so worth it to see the incredible views. Now it's time set up my hammock. I have been thinking where I could hang my hammock the whole time and I found a spot at the very top. Perfection! I have to say it was so badass to just relax in my hammock enjoying one of the most amazing views in the world with not a care in the world. As I set up my hammock, someone saw mine and said I beat him to hanging it up. We ended up talking and he was a freelance photographer that's been trying to make it. We talked the whole way down the rest of the trail talking about traveling, solitude, adventures, and life in general. It was pretty sweet, I made a friend today. Murica!
