Zion National Parks Watchman Campground is full during this Spring Break week, so we are dry camping for a few days in the South Campground. Both campgrounds have incredible views of the surrounding mountains.

Our camping neighbors last night were three college students from Iowa. They had driven 26 hours straight to get here a couple of days ago. And, this morning they left before dawn for the return trip–they plan on it taking 32 hours because they want to sneak a peek from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Youth.

We were able to take a late afternoon bike ride along the North Fork Virgin River on the Pa’rus Trail through Zion Canyon. Great ribbon of hardtop to pedal in an amazing setting.
