On our last day in Zion, Diana took us on a wonderful hike that she had discovered. Many Pools is an 'unofficial hike', but you can google it for directions. It was splendid.
The many pools are potholes made by runoff, some containing water and some not.
It was a climb all the way and sometimes was difficult for those of us who are not mountain goats. (Ron had no trouble.)
Ron and I tried out the seats at this pool. They were just a little too far apart for cuddling.
I knew I shouldn't have given Diana my camera.
We passed this pretty claret cup cactus.
When they said many pools, they weren't kidding.
I was distracted by this scene - old and new, dead and alive, beauty and the beast.
Finally we reached the end of the trail after a very long mile. We heard you can keep going, but that sure looks like a dead end to me.
Now to get back down.
Amazing how this indian paintbrush can grow so beautifully out of a crack in the rock.
