Zion National Park

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.

    Are you traveling in the RV, Jeep, or your car. Until I saw a RV coming through those rounded tunnels I wondered if a RV could make it. Looks close especially when the barge was coming. Love your blogs. Jim’s been sending them to me. Enjoy every day and I know you both will!! Sandy

      We are doing a little of all 3 (RV, Jeep or Car depending on where we are going) Like you say, they will allow an RV through the tunnel in Zion, but our setup is too long so we went around, picked up Hwy 9 south of Springdale, then parked in an RV park 3 blocks from the entrance to Zion. That way we could walk to the park or to the restaurants in Springdale. Thanks for keeping up with us!
