The desert areas are known for their hot days and cold nights, and last night we weren't disappointed. Yep, it was cold.
Packed up and out of the park at 7.30, we headed to our next destination, Zion NP.
Zion is also surrounded by towering rocky Mountains that display many millions of years geological changes through their colorful strata layers.
Temperature today was over 40degreesC so after finding a lovely campsite beside the river, decided to explore the visitors centre and other local air conditioned buildings. About 4pm we headed out on a several km hike up to Angels Landing, a huge peak overlooking the park. About 2000 feet high, I chickened out when almost at the top, because the path was on the very edge of the peak and had a chain railing, that if you let go, or slipped you would be on the canyon floor in no time at all. Like seven others in the past. Recovery was with a few drinks at the pub near the visitors centre, then back to camp for well earned food and sleep.
