Fall Hiking in Utah and Arizona, Part Two

Zion, Friday, the Subway: after the previous day's hike in the Narrows, I felt prepared for "the Subway". This hike is definitely more challenging than the Narrows, and actually was the most difficult hike I have ever done. On the way to the trailhead, there was a still pond that provided some spectacular reflections of some Fall foliage against a Mesa background. That was a serene and tranquil moment before the 3 hour intense journey to the Subway. The trail starts with a 500-foot descent to the creek, followed by multiple creek-crossings and a ton of scrambling to get to the final part of the trail which is where the rewards are. There are three spectacular sights at the end of the trail: the Cascades, the Crack, and the Subway itself. Here are a few images from this intense but worthy hike! ...enjoy :)
