This whole trail is IN the Virgin River! A full trip through the Narrows is a lengthy 16 miles hike. Gd that the spectacular sections lie only within a few miles from the Riverside Walk:)

The water is up to waist half of the time! Some people brought their own tubes and just float along the river on their way out. We should definitely try the same next time!^^

After 2 hrs of hiking on compact switchbacks that takes the trail all the way up to the top of the ridge, best part of the hike begins!!!:D

The trail continues on this narrow spine of the mountain. There are plenty of chains provided to help ease the mind, but the hike is definitely not for people who are fear of height!

Some parts of the trail are pretty narrow and it's cliff on both sides!! I guess I don't dare to hike along it if there's no chain.

After months of trying, we finally can get a permit (only 20 per day through lottery) to hike to this natural wonder. There's no trail! In the middle of nowhere, we are finding our way to the Wave using GPS and the map we received:)

We are exploring the vast area around the Wave. If we started earlier, we would have explored the Second Wave and Dinosaur Tracks (dinosaur tracks not in the museum!!) as well. Will definitely come back again!!!!:)
