Zion National Park wilderness guide

Canyon­eer­ing is ” des­cent in­to the in­ner world,” said con­ser­va­tion­ist and writer Terry Tem­pest Wil­li­ams”It of­fers us a walk through time where canyon walls rise up­ward like pray­ing hands. The desert is both beauty and ter­ror, nev­er to be un­der­es­tim­ated, al­ways to be re­spec­ted. We live by wild mercy.” Here’s the guide is­sued by Zion Na­tion­al Park where sev­en canyon­eers were killed in a flash flood in Key­hole Canyon on Sept. 14.
