Today's hike was met with all the above coupled with serendipity in meeting up with my good friend (and former college roommate), Rosalie Franek, and her daughter Bridget. A last minute trip West by Rosalie to meet up with her daughter driving across the country landed them in Zion at the same time as us, but only for this one day.
We could never have "planned" it, but it worked beautifully, and we all were so thankful that it happened as we waded and slipped through the waters of this "Wall Street" canyon. Stunning views all around.
BSoleille! The bright side of serendipity moments inside of Zion National Park!
