Zion National Park

Barbara and I are having a wonderful time at Zion National Park. Zion is one of our favorite national parks  with amazing scenery and convenient transportation to all the highlights of the park. We have electric which is a treat after almost three weeks dry camping. The sandstone formations created by the waters of the Virgin River are master pieces of mother nature. We walked the narrows marveling at the sheer canyon walls above us. From Zion we journey to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon for three nights and two days where we will meet up with our dear friend Ron from Page, AZ.
