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.
