Zion National Park seems to be a favorite of almost everyone who has visited the park. The heart of the park is Zion Canyon which was cut by the Virgin River. The result is a stunning landscape created by the combination of mountain, valley and river.

One of the things which makes Zion so popular is that it is easily accessible from Las Vegas, which is only a 2 hour drive away. In fact, you could visit Zion on a day trip from Las Vegas and there are several companies which offer such trips.

I visited Zion as part of my 2011 travel photography tour with G Adventures. We only spent a day in the park and I would love to return to spend more time photographing the Zion Canyon.
