Photographer's Note

"Spectacular" is uttered frequently as visitors' eyes raise to view the statuesque monoliths of Utah's most visited National Park. Zion Nation Park unveils its eight layers of sandstone, displaying what has taken two hundred million years to carve and mold. This extraordinary corner of Utah is a masterpiece of towering cliffs, deep red canyons, mesas, buttes and massive monoliths. Zion's fame is due to more than it's lofty peaks. It can boast of its 'geology', hiking, backpacking and some of the best scenic drives anywhere. In the center of this is Mt. Carmel Junction - Zion's Visitor Center, located on the east of the Park and only 60 miles from Bryce Canyon, 45 miles from Cedar Breaks, 9 miles from the Glendale entrance to the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, 11 miles from the Coral Pink Sand Dunes, and 85 miles from the Grand Canyon."
