After the Subway hike, we didn’t do anything else quite as strenuous during the rest of our time in Virgin, but we did go back into Zion National Park a couple more times for a pleasant walk on the Riverwalk and Pa’rus trails.
Another hike on the Guacamole trail.
There were quite a few mountain bikers on this technical trail.
Cloudy day on the Coal Pits Wash trail.
This guy thought he was hiding but most of its body was on the trail.
On our last day we took a lovely 17 mile bike ride from the Zion visitor center to the end of the canyon. This year the shuttle buses in the park are still running daily through November 13, so it was like we had the road to ourselves as we were only passed by the buses a few times. The crowds in the park dropped considerably after last weekend. We all agreed this is probably the most scenic bike ride we’ve ever done.
It was a gorgeous night for our last group walk from our site. We will miss this beautiful backyard.
It’s always bittersweet leaving friends but nice to move on after being in the same place for awhile. Currently we’re spending a few days in Nevada on our way to Arizona, where we found a little more red rock to ease the transition.
