Recently i and my wife visited this park in September. It is such a beautiful place i have no words to describe it.I wish i was a good writer or a poet.We hiked Zion narrows and Over looking trail. Park was crowded but very well managed.We were lucky to have favorable weather and of course politics...
We also visited Bryce,Capitol reef,Lake Powell,Monument Valley.All are wonderful.We had a great trip.We came home back with a pride of visiting such a wonderful places.A week after govt shut down and all the national parks are closed.It was a shock to me.How can we close such a beautiful places which are not made by us,but created by God. To me these places were like worshiping or for meditation.I can not imagine the feelings of visitors who were already there and had to leave,people who had plan to go there,local businesses and the employees at the local business,I still remember the enthusiasm of the staff at Visitor centers,Rangers,waiters and waitresses at local restaurants,housekeepers at the hotels and may other local community,they were all very helpful.I saw many foreign tourists from different countries,i am wondering what impression they will take with them about us.
Well i can write many pages about these.I am sure parks will reopen in few days its a God creation no one can close it forever.I am sure visitors who were already there will come back,many who had a plan to go there will not give up.
I think we should stop all these drama and think about it never happens again.
