The Subway

For our last big day in Zion our group picked up three more people and we did the classic Subway from the top down route. This is the route we had intededed to do on Tuesday but the rain the night before and the cold temperatures had us put it off for a day as there are several long swimming and wading stretches. It was still quite cold and just like with Spry it was difficult to take pictures due to having to take gloves on and off. This canyon is much larger than the others and lacked narrow slots and big rappels but it more than made up for that with the spectacular scenery. This was also our longest day at 13 miles and over eight hours. The exit hike was way longer and harder than I imagined and by the time it was over I was done.
