Bryce and Zion - clothing, shoes, etc

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to figure out what is sensible clothing and footwear for an August trip to the national parks of the southwest (Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon north rim).

First - guide books and official park sites 'recommend' hiking boots with ankle support but I see so many photos of people hiking with what look like regular running shoes - and even sandals (Teva type). If I only plan to do the moderate hikes, and don't generally have ankle issues, are these enough. Seems like they'd be cooler.

Second - I see photos of people wearing shorts. Now don't laugh - but years ago I was on an archaeological dig in Colorado one summer and we had to wear jeans and boots due to the rattlesnake threat. Even though it was a hundred degrees and we were wearing bikini tops we had to have our legs and feet completely covered. Don't they have snakes in Utah ( I know they do) - so how is it safe to wear shorts?

Any other suggestions?
