“Zion Canyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

We rented a Mustang from Avis and drove up from Vegas. It was a great day trip. Spectacular scenery and great hikes. Probably better to spend a couple of days and stay in the area to truly enjoy some of the more challenging hikes.

““Spectacular natural beauty!””
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Zion National Park was a very enjoyable trip from start to finish. The scenery was breathtaking. The drive in was beautiful. While our time here was far too short, we did mange to hike to the Emerald pool.

“A Park You Will Never Forget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

This Park made me say "wow" at every turn. The snow on the red rock was stunning. Sunrise and sunset was amazing when it hit the peaks. If you do one hike, do the hike to the 3 Emerald Pools.

“Spectacular views, colors and towering rock formations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

This could not get better - going in the middle of winter, without having to battle the crowds and being able to enjoy the drive down into the canyon then meandering along this almost empty and incredibly scenic road was an awe-inspiring experience.
Especially since I had the good fortune of arriving about an hour before sundown and could admire how the changing light changed the colors of the rocks. A light dusting of snow further enhanced the reds and greens of the scenery.

This was an absolutely superb experience and a summertime trip could NEVER have topped it!

“We didn't fully appreciated it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

We did appreciate the entrance part, but not too much the drive heading to the Temple of Sinawava. Most probably the best would be doing some trekking trail.
