Today we drove from Las Vegas at 7am to Zion National Park. we arrived at about 10:30am, and checked out the visitor center to get aquainted with the area and pick up some books and maps. We spent the rest of the day hiking several trails and driving the scenic route and taking 113 pictures. Oh the freedom of digital photography. The best hike was the last at Zion Canyon Overlook. You drive up a zig-zag road and through a 1.1 mile tunnel to the trail head. The trail runs around the top edge of the canyon with spectacular views way down into the canyon and at the trail end, a spectacular view into the Zion canyon area. Drove back to Las Vegas and arrived at about 9pm.
