Hidden Canyon - Zion

The second day of our Zion adventure was hiking Hidden Canyon. It starts out on the same trail as Observation Point but then veers off to the right after about a mile of switchbacks. The views looking out at Angel's Landing from this trail are spectacular in the morning light.

After the junction is when the fun really begins. There were a few exposed sections to get around the cliffs and into Hidden Canyon.

The canyon was so fun - walking between the high walls, scrambling through rocky sections, and checking out all the scenery. 

Free-standing arch!

We particularly liked that there were only a couple people in the canyon with us, so it was very peaceful. We were able to just take our time and explore the canyon. We finally got to a wall that seemed like a good turnaround spot.

The fall colors were almost in full bloom!
