Zion National Park is one of my favorites (oh who am I kidding I love all the National Parks). This is one place where I really wish I was a better photographer because I can’t quite capture the majesty of this park in a photo. I will warn you that if you plan to visit try to come during the off season. This is a very crowded park that does not have a lot of maneuvering room. Sadly the Narrows (an extremely popular hike up a river in a slot canyon) were closed this time due to the danger of flash flooding so I did not get to hike in the water.
One thing that alarmed us was the aggressiveness of the squirrels around the trails in Zion. Dean was trying to eat a sandwich at one of the bus stops and a squirrel jumped in his lap and tried to wrestle his sandwich right out of his hands. Anyone with a morsel of food in that park was subject to attack from one of the circling squirrels and that was honestly a little frightening.
Here are the best of my pics and a short video that might give you a better feel for this area. Mouse over pictures for captions or click to enlarge.
