Photo of the Day: Strong Wind on Angel’s Landing

Filed under: Hiking  Outdoor 

“This was just one of the highlights of our multi-week adventure through National Parks of the Southwest,” said reader Ashley Dalldorf. Here Chris Mullenberg battles high winds on Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park. “The view was worth the effort!” Dalldorf said.

About this photo: Angels Landing Trail in Zion is among the most famous and thrilling hikes in the U.S. The park system describes it as “a narrow rock fin with dizzying drop-offs on both sides … the trail culminates at a lofty perch, boasting magnificent views in every direction.” Chains are bolted on the cliff for safety on the precipitous 5-mile hike.
