You must be going any day now. I LOVED Zion when I went at the end of March.
A few notes about Angel's Landing: if you have ANY issues with heights DO NOT GO. If you can't climb 1500 ft before doing a dangerous hike DON'T GO.
If you aren't dissuaded yet do it. It's like no hike I've ever been on. Still, 1) Go early. It gets crazy congested if you don't go right away in the morning. There is barely room for 1 lane of traffic in spots. Having people backed up to pass gets dangerous. 2) Do the hike with shoes with great grip. Angel's Landing is on sandstone and it is slippery, especially with the morning dew. I watched a 10-12 year old slide all the way to the edge; People die on this trail. But it's worth it.
The Narrows is also highly recommended. You effectively walk through the river and there are truly majestic views within the caverns. You need a wetsuit to do this and will need to go to outfitters. There are some in town and one right outside the park (that's a little more expensive). If there is too much water flowing through the river you are not allowed to make the trek.
Whatever you decide to do have a blast and tell us all about it.
