It was 105 degrees in the park, but the water in the shaded Narrows was only 58. The water level was lower than previous years, which makes it possible to hike some sections on the dry sides. It also encourages large numbers of hikers to try the hike, many of them woefully unprepared and ill-equipped. If you attempt it, take lots of water to drink in a pack that can get wet, get at least one -- preferably two -- lightweight walking sticks. Aluminum ones can be picked up at a Wal Mart for a few bucks. Make sure you have water shoes with closed toes. The best footwear are the neoprene lined water shoes (like oversized sneakers) that you can rent outside the park (the Zion Adventure Company has tons). Take a water proof camera and leave all your other electronics in the hotel or car -- you will get wet.
