No other place on Earth can one find so many towering cliffs, finger
canyons, and hanging gardens as those concentrated in Zion National Park.
Zion is a hiking an rock climbing paradise. Many trails traverse the
cliffs, and canyons of the parks giving hikers excellent views of
the amazing and massive rock mountains, such as the Great White Throne.
Patient hikers can view the worlds largest arch.
The name Zion itself a biblical name referring to a place of peace and
refuge. After a moment in the park it is no wonder it was so named
by the Mormon Pioneers who found it. The Virgin River, a tranquil tributary
to the Colorado, emanates from the Park, spilling out of cracks and canyons
in the springtime. It offers the foundations for lush hanging
gardens. The Zion Lodge makes a convenient base for exploring the park, or
for simply relaxing, as you take in the wonders of the canyon.
Zion the tranquil refuge.
