Another great day of hikes for you two!! We certainly enjoyed that area while there even though we didn't do as much hiking as you have.
OK,, I know it has been asked but make it easy for me,,, what camera do you use?? The pictures are alway so great compared to what I take.

Hi Dave,

I'm still using an old Nikon D40. I've been using the same model since early 2007, although it was discontinued in March 2009. I do some quick brightness and contrast adjustments with a simple software, but other than that, I don't mess with the photos much.

Hi Howard and Linda,

Been following your picture stories and thoroughly enjoy them! Sure gives alot of us ideas about where to go when we're in those areas. Your pictures are fantastic and add alot to the story. I was going to ask the same thing Dave just asked about your camera, but now I don't have to. Keep up the great work!

I do have a question about the hike itself - it is hard to tell just how narrow the ledges are at the spots with the chains - did you feel hestitant at any point about moving forward or about the relative safety of the trail? We have hiked in Zion and surrounding parks and gone up as far as Scouts Landing on the Angels Landing Trail and to Delicate Arch in Arches Nat'l Park....
Have just come across your site and will be following your adventures - we have just purchased a 40' bus and and hoping to head west in it soon!

Becky,

No, we didn't feel hesitant on this trail about moving forward. For the most part the narrow part of the trail angles from the edge toward the rock wall. In some places it angles the opposite way, but that's where the chains help and the trail is a little wider.

We've heard that others didn't feel comfortable especially if it was wet. That probably would make a big difference.

But on this day, there were a couple spots we took extra care, but there wasn't anything that gave us any reason to think about turning around.
