A romantic painting of Zion, to be sure, yet not far off. What can you say about a place of such grand beauty it can melt your heart?
Can I just say it in photos?
The Virgin River may appear innocuous, but its patient force is responsible for much of what we see today.
I spend the first day just taking it all in, walking along the canyon floor, but also via the excellent Park shuttle service.
Skylights for peering at the majestic vertical cliffs.
The promise is that you won’t wait more than 15 minutes for the next shuttle. I don’t think I ever waited more than 3 minutes. Not that any wait would be a hardship with views like this from the shuttle stops.
