ESCAPE TO THE ZION NARROWS
TOPIC: Post Trade Show Utah Adventures
PROJECT: Making new friends in old parks
Twice a year we're lucky enough to make a trip out to a state with an abundance of rad parks: Utah. We make this voyage for the Outdoor Retailer trade show where we get to geek out on a bunch of other brands that are making amazing things like Poler, Iron & Resin, Patagonia, Miir, Alchemy Equipment...the list goes on and on. For outdoor gear lovers like us it's like being a kid in a candy store, and every year we use this trade show as an excuse to do some adventuring, and this year we picked the coveted Zion Narrows.
There's not much we can say about the legendary Narrows that hasn't been said before. If you want a run down on how to get out and see this incredible hike for yourself check out an amazing write up from Parks Project Ambassador Kristen aka Bearfoot Theory on her blog: Bearfoot Theory Hiking the Narrows. All we can say is it takes some planning and some serious motivation - we woke up at 3:30am the day before our hike to wait in line at the visitors center for a permit. While half asleep in line we met a talented and super friendly photographer by the name of Trent Hancock. Here's some of the amazing pics he shared with us from the trip!
