The desert air never felt so crisp. You wade upstream in Zion’s Narrows, feeling rushing water on your ankles. Beside you, thousand-foot sandstone walls stand proudly, sheared by millenia of rain and wind. A sliver of sky shines upon you, a reminder of your place in the vast ecosystem in which you find yourself. Tomorrow you have the opposite vantage, gazing across the hoodoo voodoo of Bryce Canyon. And underscore it all back at your remote private campsite, crafted exclusively for you. It doesn't get much better than this.
