17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Narrows Trail at Zion National Park

Last summer, we as a family hiked the Narrows Trail at Zion National Park, which follows the Virgin River in the narrowest section of the canyon. The gorge has walls that are more than a thousand feet high and have been carved by erosion from the river's water over millions of years. Hiking through this trail is fun but not easy as sometimes you have to wade through waste-deep water. This is the narrowest section of the trail known as Orderville Canyon, an enchanting tributary of the Narrows.
