Somewhere near the middle of the summer, I was on the verge of a burnout. It was as if I was running uphill towards my goals, with my shoes on my feet and the mountain in front of me, but I just kept falling. My sneakers bore holes, the laces came out. I skinned my knees.

Part of the luxury of travelling alone is being able to change your plans last minute and not having to consult anyone about it. When I decided to change my route to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon via Zion National Park, I didn’t tell anyone, I just did it.  Though not booking in advance has gotten me into some trouble, it has also served me well. Zion was one of the highlights of...
