The Riverside Walk is an easy, flat stroll to the mouth of The Narrows. The trail meanders along the river and under the towering red stone walls with splendid sights all around.
|A spider snack!|
|This little trickle had deposited a bunch of sand at the base of these rocks. I thought it looked awesome.|
|A hanging garden. Its hard to tell, but this is looking straight up into the sky. This is a very sheer cliff, but those plants found a way to thrive there!|
|A view from just inside The Narrows.|

|I felt like a beam of happiness as I walked in the Virgin River between those cool, towering walls. It shows in this photo, I think.|
|The Organ, The Great White Throne, and Angel's Landing. It was still a bit mind boggling to think we hiked up to that last one the day previous.|
After dinner we found a short little trail to a bluff overlooking our campground. It was called Archaeology Trail as it led up to the ruins of some ancestral Puebloan grain storage buildings. It was pretty interesting and a very keen evening stroll. The stone foundations were clearly visible, though all the rest of the artifacts had long been removed. The sunset was sublime. We slept like babies.
