TBT: Angel’s Landing Trail, Zion National Park

Throwback Thursday needs a purpose around here, and I have a LOT of unfinished blogs waiting to be written. For this segment, we’ll go back to an awesome hike in Zion National Park in 2013.

Four Corners and Monument Valley Road Trip

As soon as we hit the desert we found it necessary to stop often, trying out sandy roads, exploring the desert and choosing a campground to have a picnic…
