Travel theme: Fantastic


At almost any point of any given day, Zion National Park offers fantastic views.  On the afternoon of our visit, ever-lengthening shadows crept across this imposing juncture, causing minute-by-minute color changes while adding a sparkle to the stream below.

    What a coincidence, one of my friends showed me pictures of his visit to Zion National Park yesterday. And since then I have been thinking what would be a good time of the year / good time of the day to go visit this place. Any suggestions from your experience?

      So glad you are interested in seeing Zion National Park. It’s one of our all-time favorites. We went in early spring, so we missed seeing wildflowers and early bloomers. We did, however, see little waterfalls and signs of spring everywhere. The advantage to this early arrival was that the park wasn’t crowded. We stayed in the lodge and even the restaurant was easy to negotiate. We visited for two full days, and I’d recommend you take advantage of morning and afternoon sun if you like to take photos. The shadows are fantastic!!!

    I’ve always enjoyed Zion with its towering cliffs, interesting rock forms, and dazzling colors. Once I hiked out of the Canyon following a trail that went straight up for 3000 feet as I recall, and I was carrying a full backpack.:) It was quite the journey. –Curt

It makes our day to hear from you.
