My wife and I had only half a day at Zion, and we worried that we wouldn't even get through the entrance before we had to leave. Not so! Here are some relatively obvious pointers if you only have a few hours: 1. Wait until...More

This is a beautiful national park! Make sure you arrive early, because the line to enter the bus is pretty large in the peak season. I arrived at 7:45 (park opens at 8) and had to wait probably 30-40 minutes to enter a bus. The...More
