Emerald Pools

We finally went into Zion. I can't even tell how disappointed I was at how over commercialized it has become. When I grew up in St. George we would drive to Zion, park where our hike was and hike. Now you have to catch a shuttle (our wait was 45 minutes), ride it to our specific hike, then we had to hike with the masses of people going up and down the hike. It was very sad to this Utah native. My kids had a blast! If we do go back I will find out what the off season is.

Even though I was disappointed in the over commercialization, I was not disappointed with the beauty.  

We always have to visit Grandpa Pops bridge that he helped build.

A cool tree limb. It looked like the tree was starting to petrify. 

Heading back down the mountain. 

We had a great time despite the crowds!
