It seems that every stop we make just gets grander and grander! We almost skipped over Zion, but sure glad we didn’t!
Today we decided to take the bikes into the park with Pica. She’s not allowed on the shuttle, so we rode the bicycles trail to the canyon lookout, then found out we could ride the 6-mile scenic drive to the end. So we did! Again, one of the top rides. Don’t pass this one up if you have the chance! Zion is only a few miles long and absolutely gorgeous on bikes.
They don't allow cars and operate by shuttle into and out of the park. Stunning rock formations, beautiful canyons, rock formations, a huge tunnel to drive through and even a slot canyon at the end for the more adventurous hikers!

“Just start to sing as you tackle the thing, that couldn’t be done, and you’ll do it” (Edgar Best) & Mark’s mom
It’s amazing.. Two years ago, I feared I’d never be able to hike or bike again. Five weeks ago, Mark thought he wouldn’t be able to hike for a while.
Today, the love for nature and beauty gave us both incentive to at least ‘try’ the trails we didn’t think we could do. After packing for a 10-mile hike (just to look like the pros), we started in on our hike just to see how far our physical limitations would take us. 5-1/2 miles later, we were rewarded with some beautiful scenery, memories, and the sense of accomplishment that we did something we didn’t think we could do.
So my dear friends, no matter what your challenge, just start out and try it. You never know, maybe you’ll end up completing ‘the thing’ that you thought couldn’t be done, and you’ll do it!
