Since my parents bailed on Saturday, Cass and I found our own hike to go on. Right nearby Parowan, Vermillion Castle is a "moderate hike" with steep, narrow switch backs, but great scenery and a few Hoodoos along the way and at the top. Here is our journey in pictures!
|At the trail head|
|Scaring off mountain lions!|
|First Hoodoos, about half way up!|
|Climbing up the big rock!|
|Me climbing the big rock|
|King of the Rock!|
|View at the top -- Can you see why it's called Vermillion Castle?|
|The other side|
|With the Hoodoos at the top!|
We had a great hike! It wore us out but we can't wait to go again; it's beautiful at the top and totally worth it!
