Tuesday 5th May – Zion National Park
Bronwen and I got up early in a very foggy car as it had rained during the night and I’d had to shut the windows. We drove to a service station and bought off chocolate milk, which we swapped for the more traditional Australian-style non-off milk. Unfortunately, being American, it wasn’t very nice.
After our unpleasant milk we drove to the Zion National Park visitor centre, parked, got some advice, and caught the shuttle bus up the canyon.
First stop was The Narrows, where we waded up the river a little until our feet went numb. Cleverer people had hired waders.
After recovering from our frostbite we slowly made our way back down the canyon on the shuttle bus, stopping at each stop to have a look around and do some short walks.
Bronwen went on a longer walk without me at one stage (I’m trying to rest my knee by avoiding anything that’s too steeply downhill) while I rested on a log in the sun.
We left Zion National Park early evening and drove through some heavy rain and lightning to Page, where we—along with about 15 RVs and a handful of other cars—slept the night in the car at the local Walmart, while it rained outside. We also tried to buy some warm clothes but Walmart has moved into summer mode and doesn’t sell anything warm anymore.
