I was supposed to go to BOston for a conference at the end of this month, but now at the last minut i'll have to goto Vegas for a confereance and workshop instead.
've pretty much 95% decided on heading to Zion - have made reservations in Springdale - right after i'm done with work, i was planning on heading to zion friday afternoon on the 27 and then get back to Vegas on Sun 29 for my flight.
It means i will have friday night, saterday and sunday morning in Zion. I'm kind of worried about the crowds and heat at this time of the year (but still beats Vegas), but have never been to the Narrows.
I just wanted to get some advice on camera/lense choices for the trip, as well as some advice on the Narrows - best places there for photography..
I had planned on taking the following in my large backpack with the following:
-70-200 F2.8L IS
COnsidering that i'm planning on doing the narrows, i'm now re-considering taking two bodies. I thought i'd leave the 5D, so that instead of my large packpack i can take my Dryzone Rover.
Will i miss not being able to go wider then 21mm (16-35 on the 1DIII)
I saw the video and am a little concerned about taking my regular photo backpack that can hold more gear:http://www.utah.com/multimedia/flv/narrows.html
Is this video representative of the hike if i'm only looking at doing the bottem up hike on the folllowing sitehttp://www.utah.com/hike/zion_narrows.htm
Is the water level at the end of July the way it is in the video
I don't anticipate needing to go wider then 21mm in Vegas - but am not sure about Zion.
I'd prefer to to take all my gear - just in case, but would feel safer with the dryzone rover then with the backpack.
Any other advice on what is better -for light early morning, or late in the day.
