Zion National Park

Driving across deserts from Nevada to Utah, the name of our next destination got me just as curious as the first. How did Zion earn a top ten spot in National Geographic’s Most Visited National Parks list?  Or better yet, what about this park makes it Zion, a holy place?

We discovered the answers upon entering the park; Zion is a massive oasis that provides  life to an innumerous  amount of Earth’s creatures.

With its wide array of ecosystems, visitors can enjoy the various scenes from below the canyons…

And even the short hikes blessed us with wonder and awe. The following photos are from the Emerald Pools and the Weeping Rock.

Our biggest regret was not making enough time to hike down the Narrows– a trail directly in the Virgin River. We made it to the starting point at least?

The Narrows is among one of the many trails that will certainly bring Christopher and I back to Zion.

Two parks down. Two more to go.
