@ Bob Harris - Thanks for looking and commenting. Truthfully, I could be out all day when the conditions were like that, cool, sunny, dry and beautiful scenery with few people. Slept well that night though!

@eaglem - Thanks for your comments Em.

@cupic - Thanks for looking and taking the time to comment, appreciated!

@slowpez - Thanks for your comments too. I gather you have been there too and trudged up Walter's Wiggles?

@Brazeal - Thanks for commenting. It was indeed a great walk, in a great place, on a great day!

Thanks Charlie! There are indeed some spots on that hike not suited for the acrophobics!

Great set, incredible views down into the valley! I visited Zion a couple of years back and thought about the Angel's Landing hike, but I don't have a head for heights and gave it a miss. Although it looks like you can get a pretty good vista from just part of the way up.
