One of the greatest hikes ever. Height, views , distance, and more than a little danger.
“Angels Landing, known earlier as the Temple of Aeolus,is a rock formationmeasuring 1,488-foot (454 m) tallin Zion National Parkin southern Utah. A trail, cut into solid rock in 1926, leads to the top of Angels Landing and provides a spectacular view of Zion Canyon. According to the National Park Service, “The route to Angels Landing involves travel along a steep, narrow ridge with support chains anchored intermittently along the route. Footing can be slippery even when the rock is dry. Unevenly surfaced steps are cut into the rock with major cliff dropoffs adjacent. Keep off when it is wet, icy or thunderstorms are in the area. ”
