|This was our view out our coach front when we woke each morning.|
|Many many hikes in the park....the best way to experience the beauty.|
|2 mile Riverwalk Trail.|
|If you're a geologist or like rocks, this place is for you.|
|3D Model at the Visitor's Center showing the canyon.|
Like we said earlier....gawking is allowed.
|...and beautiful springtime flowers|
Now...this is just (just?) the canyon part of Zion....you can drive through a mile-long tunnel to get to the eastern part where the rock formations are fantastic.
|This is Checkerboard Mesa.|
|Even more of a closeup|
|..just to show you how large it is...|
|All around the base of Checkerboard Mesa is the fine sand from it. It's made of sandstone obviously but look how very fine the sand grains are next to a piece of sandstone.|
|So much of this part of the park has these layers upon layers of twisted sandstone.|
After hiking up Watchman's Trail, I made a movie but, in order to get a good conversion, it's about 16MBs. If you want to view it, you can go to YouTube to view it. It's worth it to get a good overall feeling of the park.
We were there for 5 days and still were amazed every time we looked upwards. Wonderful visit.
More photos can be found here....
and, from our last visit...there are about 135 photos here....
