Ant had planned on getting up really early to leave Vegas and head to Zion to start our day in the morning. After looking at the temperature and travel time..I convinced Ant to sleep a little later.
Big mistake! The heat is NO JOKE. Tip: Do not start hiking Zion at 1pm in July.
Ant also planned on hiking Angels Landing. We had a decent argument about this because I knew I wasn't going to make it AND we arrived later than planned. I also discovered early into our trip that my sneakers weren't the greatest for hiking. They're awesome Merrells for walking but for hiking..I slipped and slid a bunch. Tip numero 2: Wear good hiking shoes.
So, we decided to hike the Emerald Pools It was a moderate heat and the views were beautiful.
