Towards the Light

The Subway, Zion National Park

The Subway is famous for its remarkable glowing colors, emerald pools, red slickrock, and the grueling hike to reach it. The hike is almost 5 miles each way, with a 1000 foot cliff to navigate, dozens of stream crossings, boulder scrambling, and wading across wet slickrock. In return for your troubles, you're treated to a phenomenal view of glowing reflected sunlight in the sandstone tunnel, carved by water over tens of thousands of years.
