Desert beauty Jul 25, 2011
Zion is an oasis in the desert that gives you everything from desert sunsets atop red rock cliffs to amazing deep canyon hikes that provide shade and beauty on the hottest summer days. The canyon shuttle takes the driving out of your hands and allows you to sit back and take in the views. The busses stop every ten minutes at trailheads and scenic areas along the virgin river as red rocks rise above you. The canyon narrows until you reach the trailhead for the "narrows" hike where the canyon is only wide enough for the river. Kolob canyons is the northern, less visited, part of the park. Its absolutely gorgeous, but about an hour drive from Zion canyon.

Zion National Park is a 229 square mile landscape of deep canyons and soaring cliffs. From cool pine covered plateaus to scorching deserts. There are two entrances to the park. A southern entrance near Springdale, Utah, and an eastern entrance on UT-9 out at Mount Carmel Junction. Besides the wonderful views afforded by the scenic drive, this National Park has some amazing trails from easy short paved beginner style to steep strenuous rocky advanced style. Some require permits, including the overnites hikes deep into the park. One of the most popular is one called "The Narrows" and is a 15 mile hike requiring at least one full day and much of the hike requires wading the Virgin River through narrow steep canyon walls.

Large vehicles, those more than 7'10" wide or 11'4" high or more require escort through the tunnel which costs $15 for two passes in 7 days in addition to the park entrance fee.
