Zion Narrows TR pics and vid 5/08

Zion was bitter sweet per the TR post earlier this year. Just when you wanted to start cussing b/c you have been dragging your boat a mile there appears a breathtaking view.

Flows were low, there might have been 100cfs starting out on the North Fork of the Virgin and gradually decreased throughout 5-6 hours while trying to get to the Deep Creek confluence which added 2/3rds of the flow. Then it was REALLY FUN and COOL AS SHIT!

Here are some photos and a few videos...

Satan's staircase was very fun (temple of sinawava (or for the meat just put in at patriarchs) to visitors center)...it is a park and huck and good at about 200 cfs and up. Mostly read and run. Zion park FREE shuttle bus will take you to the put in!!!!!!!!!! You could even run laps on this section! Watch out for wood!
