We were hiking along the Lower Emerald Pools Trail on an April afternoon earlier this year. Walking along this easy-to-hike trail provides a feast for the eyes. There is beauty everywhere you look. It's definitely a photographer's paradise.
Here we go with my photos, although I'm sure they don't do the actual beauty of the trail justice. You just have to see it and Zion National Park in person to really appreciate the stunning beauty there.
Part of the trail that follows the Virgin River.
A peak at Zion's stunning sandstone cliffs through the shade of the trees.
The Virgin River along the trail.
Check out the cactus.
See the cactus at the bottom of this photo?

The Virgin River. If you look closely, you can see the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive in the distance.
More of the trail.
The first part of the Lower Emerald Pools Trail follows the Virgin River. Then the trail heads away from it and follows a stream. I'm not sure if the pictures above and below show the Virgin River or the stream. Either way, the scenery is so beautiful!
Three of our family members in the foreground in this photo. Time to take more pictures!
This last photo was taken by one of my sons. What a great photo! Isn't Zion National Park absolutely beautiful?
I'll be sharing more photos from our hike along the Lower Emerald Pools Trail in a future post.
Thanks for stopping by!
