Another photo from Zion National Park. This was taken along the northern section of the Emerald Pools Trail near The Grotto. I’ve done this hike twice now and I really enjoy it. You start at The Grotto, cross the river, and start up the canyon wall. You quickly gain elevation, approximately a hundred feet, then level off to go along the west side of the canyon. Continuing south after a mile you reach the Lower Emerald Pool. It is common for a small waterfall to be pouring over the side of the walls here, and on occasion a much larger one. After enjoying the cool, moist air you continue south ending the trail at the front steps of The Zion Lodge. After this hike I like to take a break and enjoy some great dinner on the patio before heading home.
