Colin started us off right away with the hike up to Angel’s Landing, elev. 1500 ft. I huffed and puffed behind him, right up to the final ascent that is lined with chains to help people not fall to the canyon floor. Slick patches of ice made it all the more challenging. The view from the top was pretty spectacular, though.

We spent the afternoon on two shorter, easier, less stunning hikes, Riverside Walk and to the Emerald Pools. Finishing the evening with a bath and a beer.
