    Not sure what my situation will be by then, but I would definitely try to be there! If you guys go on the narrows hike without me, I'm going to be PISSED!! :lol:

    I'm all over this trip. Especially with the Narrows Hike to look forward to. Hopefully I will be able to get away then but I think if we plan well, we might just be able to do it. ;) I'm hiking with Chase though. Last time Voodoocat ran downstream and left us. :lmao: That trip Freakin ROCKED! :headbang:

    RAN downstream....? In those rocks? Idiot is lucky he didn't wrench an ankle. :wink:

    Me, I do the cling-to-the-walking-stick method. :goodvibe: I will SO be in on this one, assuming my situation stays the same and I'll have vacation time built up.

    Now we must start kicking around things like: what does "fall" mean, exactly? September? October? Things start getting iffy out there in late October, but early October would still be fab. :D

    I need to check my festival schedule, too. If I shout out dates that will NOT work for me this early in the game, would the trip organizers be so kind as to take that into consideration???? :blulsh2: pleeeeeaze???

    I didn't run down :p

    I'm for whenever the leaves are vivid. The river should still be pretty low in the fall.. just chilly.

    I was there the first week of November one time. It was pretty spectacular. I'd say mid-October on you'll see some good leaf action, it could start sooner depending on rainfall over the summer. But yeah, it will be colder then in the river then, I assure you. :wink:

    The river's a blast when it's warm cause you don't care if you fall down; in the cold though, it's a fear! :D

    MATT - you don't think you'd even have a couple days vacation to spare in the fall??? You don't know what you're missing babe!!!!!!!!! :cry:

    If Matt can get the time off, maybe his benefactor can help with airfare. ;) Unless my work situation changes drastically, I'm up for a return to Zion.

    To all the people that have never been there.... Zion is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever seen. If there is any way for you to be there, I highly recommend it. (How's that for trying to help uplift this thread Terri?)

    Excellent, actually, Tammy! :wink:

    Gosh, I emailed my husband and he's already stumping me for actual DATES! :LOL: Now he's crawling the web and looking at the images again and he's thinking what film, cameras, etc. Goofy guy. I think he's ready to get back out there, too!
