Don’t miss this post. The single most awesome hike we have ever taken. Pictures first, then video clips tomorrow. We hiked a mile on a paved path and then changed out hiking boots for Keene Water Shoes and entered the Virgin River. We then hiked about three miles up the river beneath towering canyon walls, crossing over the river from side to side to avoid the rapids and get onto the sand bars to warm our feet up (the water temp was about 55. Best hike ever! I expected to see flying dinosaurs in the canyon it looked so primeval. Red Fox loved it.
