Day 1 Zion National Park
Emerald Pools Trail and Canyon Overlook

We hiked to the three Emerald Pools. Here's a closeup on some of the plant life. The Virgin River and Zion Canyon Scenic Drive are down below.
First we came to the Middle Emerald Pool. Me on a overhang near the pool.
Then we went up to the Upper Pool. I climbed around to the other side. Here I'm standing on some snow.
We went back to camp and after a short rest we hiked the Canyon Overlook Trail that starts just on the other side of the tunnel. Here's a crack along side the trail. In the top of the picture the exit of the tunnel can be seen.
