Zion National Park

May 2013

Zion National Park contains the Zion Canyon, 16 miles long and up to 3,000 feet deep, carved by the North Fork of the Virgin River.

The canyon was settled by some of the first Mormons to come to Utah.   Before that, it had been occupied by humans for 12,000 years.

Many of the unusual features in the canyon were named by the Mormons.

We went on a nice hike up to a waterfall
and hanging garden

This mountain has a name, but I forgot it
There's a "natural bridge"

On the way home, we stopped at a little pizza restaurant / tourist shop.  The food was OK, nothing special, but they had a toy for me to play with

Lots more pictures.
