The Narrows

Growing up we had a framed painting on the wall that said “The Narrows,” representing the canyon in Zion National Park.  It’s still on that wall in the same house, and I always wondered what the Narrows was like.  This was my first time at the Narrows, and we found out quickly that it’s a popular spot.  We walked along a path along the Virgin River until it ends, and the hike in the Narrows is in the water.  The squirrels on the path were quite friendly, I’m assuming they are accustomed to people on the path, because they are often fed or find dropped food.  We watched as a squirrel ran right by our feet with a full-size chocolate bar in its mouth!
