Zion National Park, UT (Thur.4/17)

We decided to make our 3rd trip into Zion. This time it's Dad and Shae. I figured that since the Angels Landing was the best hike I've ever been on and that Shae would do well, just the two of us – here we go. As we exited the bus, Shae started feeling a little sick and even threw up a little bit. I started downplaying the hike and said that he'd probably have another chance sometime in his life. After sitting for 5 minutes or so, Shae said he could try it.

They list the hike as 4 hours. We took a 25 minute lunch break at the top and still did it in 2 hours and 23 minutes. Shae was an animal. We stopped once for water on the way up (because I asked to) and on the way back, we ran / jogged most of the way down (because he asked to).

Great hike (again) and great Shae and Dad time.

Kobe finished his first day of not sucking his thumb so we all went out for ice cream at night to celebrate. He did great – we're tentatively optimistic (with the tabasco sauce ready in my back pocket)

Here's the sliver we climbed up...
