Okay, I said that first title using my best Jack Nickolson impersonation…
We really lucked out being there at the right time!
We disembarked and proceeded to the “Narrows” trail. I use that term loosely as it
really means, “Meander your way up the 1.1 mile sidewalk, then prepare to get wet as the trail continues following the Virgin River up the slot canyon!”
My son ended up taking his camera for a swim. 😦
We hiked at least another mile up the Narrows. We saw these gorgeous Desert Draperies along the weeping rocks.
The Canyon is made up of Navajo sandstone that absorbs rainwater, which allows it to “seep” out of the rocks like tears.
Along the trail you can find hanging “gardens” that feature plants like ferns that are usually seen in wet, humid climates.
If you have the opportunity to hike the Narrows, make sure you take a walking stick! It made a huge difference!
