This past weekend we made a trip down to St. George so we could do one of Duane's bucket list hikes. This time around it was the East Rim Trail of Zion National Park. We got up early and drove up from St. George, parking one car just in town outside the West entrance to the park and driving a second car to the start of the trailhead just next to the East entrance.
We got on the trail around 9:00 AM and finished around 3:00 PM - six hours of hiking and a little over eleven miles of distance covered. It was pretty hot and sunny and we has just barely enough water to make it the entire way.
When we finished we took the bus back to the West entrance from Weeping Rock and then took another bus into town to where our car was parked. We then drove back to the East entrance and then back again to finally exit the park at the West entrance. A yummy dinner at Pizza and Noodle (there cheese bread was incredible) and we were headed home for a relaxing evening.
