For me it was a five-miler to Angel's
Landing in Zion National Park on the first day, followed by a tougher
seven-mile trek through pretty Padre Canyon on the second. On the third
I did a six-mile hike as the sun rose over the Colorado Plateau, and on
And gradually I came to realize that the reward for my efforts wasn't the loss of a pound or a deep-tissue massage, but the walking itself in breathtakingly beautiful desert canyons.
