Zion is a place where even unnamed features are magnificent. Surprises are everywhere. Some loom large, their splendor obvious from afar. Others adorn the landscape with a subtle grace. To explore this land is to witness earth's past and present glory.
Zion National Park, located in southern Utah, was first set aside in 1909 as Mukuntuweap National Monument, to preserve dramatic canyons and cliffs caused by erosive forces.
