Zions Subway & Video Clips

Zions SubwayA group from hiked the famous Subway in Zion Park over Labor Day. It was a great adventure hike, one of my all-time favorites.

This video clip shows the adventure.

You’ve got to swim several long pools of cold water as you make your way through the Subway. The water is cold, even on the hottest summer day. Temperatures in the Zion/St George area are still warm enough for wet hikes, but that season will end draw to a close within a few weeks. Then we will turn our attention to the dry, desert hikes which are more pleasant during cooler weather.

I think my latest clip is significantly better than my early work. I’ve found ways to increase the quality of the video while keeping file sizes relatively small. And I made my brother-in-law do the voice over, so it sounds better.

Now that I have better tools, I’ll go back and redo some of my clips, like these:
  • Zions Narrows
  • Zions Angels Landing
  • Arches Delicate Arch
  • Arches Devils Garden
  • Lake Powell Houseboat
  • Spooky Gulch
  • The Wave of Coyote Buttes

    My goal is to have clips showing many of Utah’s best destinations and adventures. It’s a fun hobby. During the next few months I hope to do more clips, including these:
  • Monument Valley
  • Hovenweep
  • Highway 12
  • Goblin Valley
  • Grand Gulch
  • Temple Square

    Over time, I’ll do a bunch more.

    I appreciate feedback. Tell me if you know ways I can make them better, or if there are spots/activities you’d like to see.
