Zion National Park

Towering cliffs of red, white, and pink Navajo sandstone, stream-carved slot canyons, and big blue sky all characterize Zion National Park.

And it doesn't end there: take a memorable drive along Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway, mingle with the ghosts of the past at Grafton Cemetery (Ghost Town), take in breathtaking views at Kolob Canyons, and take some stellar pictures from Observation Point.
