Xavier waiting in the subway

A few hundred kilometres more across the remote countryside of Utah and we were back into National Park Land. Zion is a large canyon with some unique flora and fauna. We got ourselves a permit to go hiking in the Subway. This canyon, famous amongst canyoneering people, has a strange feel of abandoned ruins of futuristic architecture. No wonder why it's called the Subway, it really looks as if it was taken for model to design the stations of the London Tube.

The next morning, we went up Angel's Landing, a beautiful and popular trail that climbs above the Virgin River. Xavier loves running in the mountains as much as I do, and by noon we were already back to the car, driving to the state of Nevada, to a city named Las Vegas.
