Vagabonding in Zion National Park and The Kolob Terrace

We've spent the last 3 years living just a short drive from Zion National Park.  Before we embarked out of Utah on our grand adventure, it seemed only fitting that we spend our last bit of time in Zion.  We've had many a one-day and two-day adventure in Zion, but due to working schedule restrictions, were never able to spend much longer there.  This time we were able to spend an amazing 11 days camping, hiking, climbing, laughing, playing and experiencing Zion.

Cheap Zion Camping: Use By Donation Camp Near Kolob Terrace

Are you planning a trip to Zion but don't want to break the bank on accommodations? There are several options for doing it cheap or free. Mosquito Cove was the popular favorite until it was washed out and closed due to flooding in 2010. A few of the cheap/free sites that remain are: Watchman campground at the mouth of Zion for $16/night, the Coal Pits Wash Trailhead (we've seen many people camped for free here but aren't sure of the legitimacy), a free camping area known as Sandy Flats (sits in the BLM portion of Kolob Terrace) and our new favorite: The "Use By Donation Campground".

Over the Edge: Rappelling at Kolob Terrace

We've volunteered to be victims in a high angle rescue course this weekend (that post will come later).  Well, after meeting our friend and course instructor Kevan Jorgensen to learn what we'd be doing as victims, he suggested we head up to Kolob for some real fun.  We gladly accepted.

We'd never been up Kolob Reservior Road before and found the scenery to be absolutely beautiful. The look and feel is very similar to the rest of Zion National Park, but has it's own unique spirit.  Kevan drove us to a little spot near a friend's cabin on Kolob Terrace.  We hiked up to to edge of the cliff we were to rappel.  Kevan had not been there in several years, so we were unsure if our rope would actually reachthe bottom.  Our rope was 80 meters (just over 260 feet) and the cliff was large enough that we couldn't see the bottom so the only way to know if the ropewas surely long enough was to go over the edge and head down.  Scary?  Yep, just a bit.
