We have heard from many people we've met in our travels that Zion is their favorite national park, and I can see why. The vast scope of Zion Canyon, the colors and forms of the rocks and the unique influence of the Virgin River all make this a very special place. I found it hard to photograph and hard to love. I guess some places resonate more than others and Zion was not my favorite place. We had fun there, great hikes and got some nice pics, but the crowds were distracting and the sheer verticalness of it was kind of intimidating. I do have to say that the Angels Landing hike was an experience to remember and I will do a separate post on that experience soon!
