100 Days of National Parks: Day 37 – Cable Mountain, Zion National Park

Atop Cable Mountain

There’s something about climbing to the top of a mountain or ridgeline and looking out across the landscape laid out below that always appeals to me.

100/100/100: Day 1 – Spring in Zion

Spring in Zion

Spring is definitely in the air, and with its arrival, my wanderlust is at an all time high. April is always a month for me to get out and explore, and two years ago, as part of a southwest road trip, I spent two days in the beautiful greenery of the main canyon of Zion National Park, listening to the gentle rush of the Virgin River, and soaking in the radiant sunlight that spoke of new life returning to this desert oasis. Zion has long been my favorite of the National Parks, and overtime I go I find something new to love about it. Spring is the perfect time to go, as the crowds are not yet in full swing, and the weather is ideal, cool enough to hike but not so cold that you freeze in your tent at night.
