Reflections: Hiking Utah’s Zion National Park

Peace and greetings to my fellow nature lovers. Perhaps you are here because, like me, you feel a stronger spiritual connection on the trails than from any sort of human construct. Whether this is true for you or not, it is my sincere hope that you will find some useful and/or entertaining information on this site, or at the very least, a few photos that will be appreciated and maybe even awe-inspiring.

As I write this paragraph it is Sunday evening, July 10, 2004, and I, Stephen Frasier, proud hiking addict, have just returned from the glorious Zion National Park in southwest Utah, just north of the small but beautiful town of Springdale, Utah. My father, Charles Frasier, and I try to take some sort of nature trip about every other summer, often around July 4th. Having been to some of the parks listed at left (Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks — ed.) several times, we decided it was time to experience trails we haven’t hiked. My request to take in Yosemite was duly noted and overruled by he who funds.

Afoot and lighthearted I take to the open road, healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path leading wherever I choose.

— Walt Whitman

I am adding photo galleries to include Zion National Park in Utah, Bryce National Park, also in Utah, and a few from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon where only a short time was spent. Zion was the focal point of this year’s excursion.
