Our next destination was Zion National Park, and we got a sneak preview as Highway 9 actually wound through the park! Somehow it was even better than any of the other parks we had seen (photos yet to come). With no wifi and most RV parks fully booked, we drove for another hour and camped the night just outside Virgin.
Having driven past an old Redbull Rampage site, Sack was very keen to go and check it out. We enjoyed a coffee and the most incredible cinnamon scroll at River Rock Roasting Co. (soon to become our favourite cafe) before setting out to explore the area. We drove up the towering mesa and put Josie through her paces over the lumpy, narrow ridge roads. Lucky we had the A/Ts on!
We caught some spectacular views and carefully surveyed the landscape for hidden trails. Forbidden to do the most extreme trail, Sack found one at much lower altitude that still allowed him to achieve some adrenalin-filled mountain biking.
