Zion National Park, UT

ODOMETER: 86,703 | TOTAL MILES TRAVELED: 8,493

It was a beautiful, rainy day in Zion National Park, Utah. Zion’s geology features some of the tallest sandstone monoliths in the world. It was named “Zion” by Mormon pioneers who arrived in the late 1800s. The name was believed to be a Paiute name meaning “straight canyon.” The Park contains one of the world’s most daring hikes called Angels Landing, which peaks at 1,488 feat above the canyon floor.

The trail is only 2.2 miles long, but the last half-mile is very strenuous and narrow, with sharp drop offs on both sides. We are looking forward to more Zion exploring tomorrow.

Our trip to Australia was delayed due to port closures throughout the South Pacific. We spent the month making improvements to Hanavave so that we could make the passage to Australia with fewer stops.
