Last week, we headed to Utah to meet up with a crew to do The Subway in Zion National Park. Taking photos in the Subway has long been on my photography bucket list, so I was more than stoked to make the 8 hour trek across CO and Utah!
We met up with the group and camped out on BLM land outside the park. Good food (YUM to tacos with MS salsa!), great company and even better views is a good summation of our camping experience.
The day we picked up our Subway permit, we had to make the call to hike bottom up instead of rappelling and going top down. The flows were pretty high, so we decided to play it safe. The hike was sick. Lots of wading and green trees against red canyon walls. Devin and I had packed our new MS lightweight hoodies. They were perfect for the coolness and shade beneath the canyon walls.
We rented canyoneering shoes (thankfully), and were able to hike up the creek to the actual Subway. It was even better than the photos I had seen.
We hiked back out that afternoon and since Utah in April is one of our favorite places, so we decided to tack on some other adventures while we were out there. Definitely check out the slot canyons in Escalante and other hikes (Angel’s Landing) in Zion!
