Zion National Park in Utah is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in America. The major part of the park is Zion Canyon, which was entirely carved by the swift currents of the Virgin River – in some places carving the canyon to depths over 2000 feet. Some of the popular hiking destinations at Zion National Park include Observation Point, Angel’s Landing, and the Emerald Pools. This is the first of four pages of photos of Zion National Park (page 2).Larger versions of these photos of Zion National Park in Utah can be viewed by using a mouse rollover, clicking an image, or using the Slideshow below.

Zion National Park in Utah is my personal favorite of all US national parks. Zion Valley has some terrific day hikes and offers spectacular scenery even from a car or bus window.

Observation Point
The hike to Observation Point in Zion National Park is the most strenuous hike in the main portion of the park. But the hike is worthwhile, providing beautiful views up the canyon.

landscape photo of The Narrows in Zion National Park
The Narrows #8
When the water flow of the Virgin River passing through Zion National Park becomes slow enough, the park service allows people into the canyon known as The Narrows. The canyon walls rise over a thousand feet nearly straight vertically from the river, making this hike one of the most popular in the park.

Although Zion National Park is one of the smaller US national parks, it is arguably one of the most beautiful. The contrast of beautiful red sandstone against a deep blue sky is hard to beat.

The Narrows #13
The hike through the narrows is a wet one, often requiring wading. Depending upon the water level in the river, a hiker will spend about half of his or her time wading and the other half on sand at the base of the tall canyon walls.
