Photographer's Note

In this view is the Zion Canyon, the heart of the National Park. Carved by the North Fork of the Virgin River, with one of the steepest stream gradients in America at 50 to 80 feet drop per mile.
The Park road follows the North Fork of the Virgin River for a length of 6 miles ending at the Temple of Sinawava sandstone landmark, which is the Paiute Indians' name for "Coyote God".
At Sinawava, the Canyon narrows and a foot trail continues on into the Zion Narrows, a wonderful slot canyon to be explored.
