The first of five National Parks we visited in Utah. We hiked up to Observation Point and Angels Landing for spectacular views of the the red canyons.
After camping at high altitude and below freezing temperatures, we hiked to the top of Wheeler Peak, the second highest peak in Nevada at 13,065 ft (3,982 m).
On our hike up to Amphitheater Lake we saw a black bear from up close, but luckily it was more interested in eating berries than humans.
This was the last of 3 National Parks we visited in Washington. After spending a lot of time trying to find a campsite during Labor Day, we hiked up to beautiful Hidden Lake. This was the first serious day hikes we did during our road trip.
Our road trip continues on in the Pacific Northwest with the national park named after this famous mountain. We stayed in a great campground, and enjoyed views of Mount Rainier from every angle.
