Instead of our usual trip to Zion on Easter weekend we spent some time in Kolob Canyon. It was much easier to get in and out and less crowded. It felt special and exciting. I missed Zion, but I didn't miss the +3 hours waiting in lines. We were happy to be with family (which is the most important) and scope out a new place (bonus). We will have to keep exploring to find the best spots for wading and hiking.
