Deep into the "Narrows" in Zion National Park, Utah.

This image was taken several hours into a hike upriver in the world-famous Zion Narrows. Although this water was only ankle deep, I had to trek through water that was waist deep to get to this point. Since it was November and chilly, I rented a dry suit up to my chest, water shoes, a walking stick and a very large dry bag to cover my photography gear. This is among the best hikes in the entire US National Park system. It can only be hiked when there is no chance of rain. The towering Navajo Sandstone walls reach heights of 1000' feet, but do not absorb any water. Consequently, a flash flood miles away can be deadly.
