Let me get this out of the way right off about Zion National Park: Zion is pretty, Zion has some amazing hikes, Zion has some of the most interesting highway tunnels I have ever seen. But, in mid-August Zion is hot.
No, I mean hot, real hot. 108° degrees hot. Even in a freakin’ desert, dry as a bone, way too hot, hot. We’re human beings ever really meant to survive in this heat, hot.
Needless to say, babes and I did not deal well with the heat. Jodi did not have as much issues, but even she was willing to admit, it was freakin’ hot.
I feel like a Costco hotdog.The kid, after a hike, when asked how she was doing.
But, we did see some sheep and had a really, honestly, nice hike, but too hot.
Mask wearing was also low, sub-70% I would say. Which really pissed Jodi off. The kid and I were too hot to care much. Did I mention it was hot?
And then we drove on to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
