ZION NATIONAL PARK UTAH

This image was made during the fall of 2015 in SW Utah. It was one of three parks that we visited on this trip, but the park we enjoyed the most was Capital Reef because it was the least crowded. Zion was packed with vehicles and it was very difficult to find a place to pull over unless you left early in the morning before sunrise. Once in a continuous line of traffic, you had to stay there until you were lucky enough to find a parking spot. Otherwise, it became a drive through. That is not the way I like to enjoy the scenery.

Bryce was much better, and we had more than enough space to walk and view the dramatic erosional features. Capital Reef was more to our liking, and we'll be quick to go back for a second viewing this coming fall. The erosional features in these three parks are dramatically different. But this is typical of Utah. The landscape changes fast as you travel along.
