Zion Canyon

Zion National Park is a southwest Utah nature preserve distinguished by Zion Canyon’s steep red cliffs. Zion Canyon Scenic Drive cuts through its main section, leading to forest trails along the Virgin River. The river flows to the Emerald Pools, which have waterfalls and a hanging garden. Also along the river, partly through deep chasms, is Zion Narrows wading hike.

On the way into Zion; we stopped at the Whiptail grill for lunch.  It was a bright sunshiny day so we all decided to eat outside on their patio area.  The food was very enjoyable.

We stayed at the lodge inside the park and again, I would highly recommend staying there.

There was lots of hiking in the park.  A few more adventurous people from our group decided to hike Angels Landing.  I would recommend you check this hike out on a You Tube video as it is quite dangerous.  However, they all made it back alive and we all drank to their survival that night:)

They guys had found the Zion Canyon Brewery prior to us going there.  They called ahead of time and arranged a private tour of the brewery.  It was probably one of their most enjoyable experiences in Zion as the guys who owned the brewery gave them a case of beer to take with them.

Please join me next week as we go to our last stop on this journey; Las Vegas!
