That place is beautiful, but it is deadly if you aren't paying attention or slip at the wrong time.

I think people go there thinking it will be an easy hike, like the trails they are used to.  Then they get to Zion and find out a hike there means holding on to chains with both hands while you shuffle along a trail barely wide enough to accommodate you.  One side is the mountain and the other side is a deadly fall.

I don't know how those crazies that climb to Angels Landing do it.

Fun fact, Zionism is also what early Mormons called their slave labor system.  Members were required to hand over all their property to the church, and then the church would hand them some of it back if they felt you needed it more than God or his favorite church leaders, turns out you didn't.

Later under Brigham Young you were required to work on church farms and in church factories in exchange for food and shelter.  Unless you were a woman or one of the favored Mormons, then you got to live as a rich polygamist.

Of course government had to go and ruin all that religious freedom by forcing the church to release folks who had developed the unfortunate belief that it was not God's will for them to be workers for the benefit of rich polygamist leaders.

Oh and I should add that it was that system that Zion National Park was named by the Mormons to honor, it being god's divine plan and all.

This is a tragic story. I've been saying for years that mountains should be limited to no more than twenty feet high. There is no possible reason that a mountain should be higher than that.We could save many lives here folks.

I rarely hike alone, and even then I think about mountain lions, etc. This world is out to kill you.

Sounds a lot like communism. This would do well in politics tab.

Sounds like the beach hikes on the Olympic Peninsula. Oh yeah, a nice stroll on the beach! The rangers let you know that you will die if you try to hike around the headlands marked with a red X, yet people still try, because the trails over the headlands are so nasty.

The walls of the valley are extremely ... mobile. A few years ago, a major rockslide diverted the river and closed the road for months. As a rule, you want geological formations to seem permanent. We were there for 2-3 days and I felt uneasy the whole time. Our lodge was right below a cliff.

Blame zionism?  Nah.  Like most things on Fark, I blame Onanism.

You're not wrong.  I hiked the Appalachians a bunch as a kid.  Loved them.  They were amazing to my Floridian eyes.  My first trip out west spoiled me.  Now the Appalachians are pretty meh to me. My backpacking trip in Colorado last year started at 9,500 feet.

Where are your Zion curtains now?!

Wow, did you just make all that up in your head or is that some copy-pasta because the stupid is burning hard on that one.

Zion is a Hebrew word for sanctuary, or something close. Did you think the Mormons made that word up? Cause it kinda sounds like you think they did...

You know, I was reading a story the other day that scientists were baffled by two dozen dead sea lions found on the shores of California as they attempted to migrate.  I was confused as well, because I thought the Dead Sea Lions were an Israeli basketball team.

There are a lot of things to blame non-science based religions on, but this isn't one.

Fux link.  Ugh.

I will say that lately the real world kerfuffles about "Zionism" is bad enough (the whole, often deliberate, confusion between the founding of Israel, various ongoing bullcrap conspiracy theories about Jews ruling the world, and a dispicable current government in Israel that's quite apart from how we should judge normal citizens there--or Jews elsewhere in the world). But at some point the damn Mormons had to use that phrase too (a lot, actually).

Double ugh.
