The Narrows



The Narrows is a beautiful canyon in Zion National Park where the Virgin River flows through towering sandstone walls. The Narrows is not just a hike, it’s also a pilgrimage. Paiute people considered this place sacred, and later, European explorers were amazed by its beauty. The Virgin River has carved this slot canyon over many years. Imagine walking through the cool water with the walls closing in, and sunlight filtering through narrow gaps. John Wesley Powell, who was an explorer with one arm, visited The Narrows in 1872 and left his mark on history. Today, it’s a testament to the beauty of nature and a place where water and earth merge.

Photographers flock to The Narrows for more than just framing light; they want to capture wonder. At midday, shadows dance on the water when the sun’s rays reach the top of the canyon walls. The blue hour adds magic and the canyon walls glow. Photographers aim to capture the timeless beauty of this place. They wade through the river with their cameras, capturing reflections, textures, and the symphony of colors. The Narrows become their muse, inviting them to dance with the elements.
