Observation Point - Zion National Park - 5/12/16

Angel's Landing from Observation Point

Echo Canyon Slot

Thursday's Group on Observation Point
 There were two hikes to Observation Point this week. The classic Zion NP hike begins at the Weeping Rock shuttle stop and climbs a large set of switchbacks before passing through a beautiful slot of Echo Canyon. More switchbacks  that are carved into the rock wall take you to the plateau above. The trail then circles around to a point where you can see Zion Canyon and Angel's Landing below you. Eleven hikers were on the hike with these photos.
