Just driving through Zion National Park is a breath taking experience. Admittedly the road and the sudden drop offs make one hold their breath at times. I wouldn't have missed this for the world.

It was $30 to drive the 5 Miles, and it was worth it. We met wonderful couples enjoying it with us but it was not crowded.

Kolob Canyon is the northwest corner of Zion National Park, with its own access point. Much smaller than the main part of Zion, it seems to be much lesser known, but is every bit as spectacular. While the canyon walls in Zion Canyon seem to...More

The spectacular drive up Kolobs Canyon is only 5 miles long (each way) so cruise slowly and use every turnout. Once you stop - and now the driver can look around too -- beauty is in all directions. The scenery is spectacular in both directions,...More
