In consideration of the shutdown, here are my last impressions of Utah. Places visited: Escalante Staircase, Bryce Canyon and Zion. I loved Zion and I really didn’t spend enough time there. I managed to hike the Narrows from the bottom to Big Spring, it took about 7h and I had the beginnings of a cold the next day messed up my planning. The water was 15 degrees Celsius and as one can imagine it gets cold.
Not sure where I go from here, I will probably make my way to the West Coast and from there up to San Francisco. Who knows when the National Parks will open again, I am a bit restless and I try to find some routine for the last month of this trip.
