The Angels Landing Trail is one of the most famous and thrilling hikes in the national park system. The driver of the shuttle bus warned us that this hike is not for anyone with a fear of heights. Of course, Chris and I would not listen.


This 5-mile hike (two ways) can be done within 2-3 hours, although it's basically straight up and straight down one way trail. It offers one of the most stunning and challenging treks we had ever undertaken.


Most part of the trail is paved, although quite steep and winding all the way up.


Hey, but for the magnificent view, it's totally worth it.


The challenge would not be physical, but rather, it would be psychological. The last section of the hike to Angel’s Landing is notorious for raising the fear factor for those who don’t like heights.


This trail could have been the most challenging trails we've ever undertaken, if Chris did not chicken out. Basically, when he saw the sign and the sheer drop of the cliff on both sides, he called it quits after mere 10 seconds of standing on the "FLAT" platfor with quivering legs. Oh, well, at least we were almost there.


In spite of challenges and the slight disappointment of not making to the top, this hike remains our most favorite one during our 1-week of exploring Zion, Grand Canyon and Bryce.




The unique red rock in the park.
