Zion National Park, Utah


Zion is noted for the remarkable diversity of its plant and animal life, as well as its geological makeup. Numerous rock strata are visible, making for a gorgeous and painterly view from almost anywhere in the park. Visitors can stay in comfort in lodges, or they can rough it at campsites. A few backcountry camping permits are available, as well.
