Planning a trip to Costa Rica? Here are the 8 best hotels!
Banff is a major international tourist destination that becomes overwhelmingly crowded every summer. There are queues outside restaurants, the bars are full, it’s difficult to see Lake Louise due to all the tourists swarming around the water’s edge, and the parking lot at Moraine Lake seems eternally closed due to overpopulation.
Angels Landing in Zion National Park, is considered one of the top ten most dangerous hikes in the world. There are actual survival guides made for this 5.4 mile hike.
When some friends called to ask if I could guide them around Zion during their cross country road trip, I was eager to take on the responsibility of facilitating an unforgettable adventure for them. I was, however, unwilling to take them on a congested hike overfilled with tourists like "The Narrows Bottom-Up" or "Observation Point" can sometimes be.
