Zion National Park

I've been looking forward to this National Park for a long time now. Whenever a group of RVers gather and discuss fun places they've been to, sooner or later someone will say, "Have you been to Zion National Park yet?" When you say no, they will sigh and say, "You HAVE to go."

And they are right. It is an amazing place.

Weather reports for this week have been pretty lousy, predicting rain every day. So when Tuesday came and the weather reports looked OK, we decided that was our day. Unfortunately, so did everyone else who was in the area. The lines were long to get into the park and the roads were a bit crowded, but that did not dampen our spirits. We were going to Zion!

Words escape me in describing this place, so I am sorry but I am just going to post a few photos out of the hundred or so that I took. You will see that the morning started out cloudy before starting to clear. I just ask that you view these by picturing the scale of these cliffs and mountains.  They are unbelievably huge. Remember that, to get a real idea of what it's like driving through this park.


The scenery was almost too beautiful; everywhere we looked there was another breathtaking scene. But this is one place that everyone needs to put on their bucket list to visit.
