Top of Observation Point... This day was quite tolling on my body. First we went to hike the Narrows but they still had it closed due to heavy flow in the river. So we turned back after the 2 mile walk there and back. So we decided to hike to Observation Point so we could overlook Angel's Landing and Zion Canyon. As we started I was informed this was a 8 mile hike with over 2,100 ft of elevation change. Seemed quite a bit but the view seemed totally worth it. As we got to the Hidden Canyon fork we decided to check it out and see what it was about, adding 2 miles to our hike. After the Hidden Canyon detour we continued onward to Observation Point. Switchback after switchback I grew more tired and more tired, heart racing like a running rabbit. When we finally got within .25 miles of the point, it finally got flat making the walk a lot easier. By the time we reached there it was already 5:30 PM. We were going to stay up there for sunset but realized that the buses only go till 9, so we opted out of that. I snapped a few shots and we started heading back down, making great time for sunset at Grand Junction. When we hit the parking lot, I was thoroughly exhausted. Thought to myself how many people say the hike to Angel's Landing is tiring, 5 miles round trip, and this being 8 miles and at least an extra 500 ft in elevation. So after the 12 mile hike that day I was done, passing out immediately when we got back to the campsite.
