We met up with sister Diana outside of Zion National Park. She always has the best ideas of hikes to do. Our first was the Watchman Trail, three miles round trip and one I had never done.
Like the Grand Canyon, Zion has a convenient bus system, but the Watchman Trail begins right at the visitors center.
The trail seems to have a lot more elevation change than the 368 feet in the hiking guide, but the scenery is perfect.
Humm, good advice.
We safely made it to the top where there was a nice view of the Watchman.
As well as the towering rock formations across the valley below.
On our way down, Ron did some trail work, as usual. He's such a considerate hiker.
