Zion tomorrow for 5 days. Should be a leisurely 2 1/2 hour drive to the RV park just outside the East entrance. Thanks Don for that recommendation.

Must-do activity suggestions needed for the wife & I; 3-4 mile round trip, nothing technical, blah blah. I would also like some ideas for more heinous pursuits for me to do solo. Is there a place like the Camp 4 bulletin board to troll for climbing partners?
Saw the FB pics, looks good. Hopefully it is everything Epic and I promised...
Also, I would recommend hiking up the Zion Narrows. From the end of the bus its a mile trail. From there you wander in and out of the stream for 1/4 mile. Then wade through the stream for quite a bit. You can go up as far as you want before turning around. Very cool. The wife went a short ways with the 2 younger ones. I went 1/2 mile past the end of the trail with the older boy. For a short section it was kind of deep, but slow moving. Pulling my day pack up kept it out of water, and my 11 yo son did fine. Must do.

There's a dog boarding place in town....

1) Score a permit for an overnight through the narrows. They reserve half of the permits for walk-ins. Stay in the area of camps 1-5 and it will be a perfect trip. Take the early shuttle and take... your... time. Bring the camera and have plenty of batteries and memory/film (Who uses film anymore - besides me?)
2) Arrange a shuttle for dropoff. We used Zion Rock Guides
3) Drop off the pooches.
4) Have your mind blown!

Additionally, you can take a small bit of roap and a harness for the missus and head into Orderville canyon for a day trip. Follow steps 1-4 (substitute Orderville for step one).

Or the subway tubes.

Since you are camping there and seem to be on a free schedule you would have the privilege to just get up and go whenever availability is. Don't let the bottom-up experience of the Narrows dissuade you. I enjoyed the canyon above "Wall Street" much more than where the hoards of tourons are. Plus, going down stream all day is much better than going up!

The Hanging Gardens Trail is one to check out! Go all the way to the top! While Angels Landing is neat, and I surely didn't mind the ADA accessible trail, the 5.0 section with chains and whatnot was a clusterfuck!

There are two bakeries within walking distance now that I'm living in the city. I have been taking full advantage.

That's typically indicative of bad, really-bad, news.

Or parties!

I like cake.
