Towering cliffs of red, white, and pink Navajo sandstone, stream-carved slot canyons, and big blue sky all characterize Zion National Park.
Explore Zion National Park's surroundings by going to Springdale (Canyoning & Rappelling Tours & David J West Gallery). There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape of The Narrows, explore and take pictures at Zion Shuttle, take in breathtaking views at Zion's Main Canyon, and take a memorable drive along Zion Canyon Scenic Drive.
