Most countries would be happy with just one spectacular national park, but oh no the USA has to be different! Zion might not be as famous to travellers from the UK but it is another great place for day walks. The walk up to Scouts Lookout forms part of the walk to Angels Landing, whilst walking 0.5miles to Angels Landing seems like an easy extension to the walk it does involve walking along a ledge with no fencing and a 500m drop... not for me!
The weather over the last couple of days had been poor, but despite low cloud it had stopped raining. As with most National Parks there was a quick and easy shuttle bus around the canyon floor which dropped us off yards from the trailhead (Start of the path). The first mile or so was along the valley with gentle climbs and easy walking.
