パルヌウィープ – Parunuweap


コロナも何も関係ないほどザイオン国立公園内は混んでいました。駐車できる場所を探すのに一苦労でしたが、私たちの目指すパルヌウィープの高台への登山道に入るとすぐ喧騒は消えてしまいました。Zion National Park was already so crowded even though there are still Corona restrictions. We had a hard time finding a place to park, but it became quiet once we started walking on the trail to our destination, Parunuweap Overlook.

以下のスクリーンショットは私たちの道なき道を歩いた軌跡、標高、そして移動スピードのデータです。携帯サービスのない所にばかり行くので、サテライトに繋げられるデバイスを使い始めました。The screenshot below shows the trace of our hike, elevation, and speed of our movement. We started using a gps device that can connect to a satellite because we often go places where no cell phone services are available.

このハイキングは9時間ほど、16kmぐらいの距離を崖を登ったり降ったりと、かなりチャレンジングなものでした。でも、どこもかしこも絶景で、ザイオンの秘境を満喫し、同時に自然の美しさを謙虚に受け止めました。The hike was about 10 miles long with a lot of ups and downs on a rocky surface for about 9 hours. It was quite strenuous for me, but everywhere I looked, I found spectacular views. I humbly appreciated all of them at the secluded area of Zion NP.

R5 カメラがあったら、どんなに美しく撮れたことかと思うと残念ですが、私の携帯カメラでも、十分に素晴らしい絶景が撮れました。I wish I carried my R5 camera so that I could take much better shots than these. (if I carried my R5, it might be too hard to walk through the hike.) Yet, still, I could captures many nice shots.

記念に残るハイキングの一つになりました。This hike became one of my most memorable hikes in recent years.
