Everyone Needs To Visit Zion National Park (At Least) Once In Their Lifetime [31 HQ Photos]

Located in the Springdale, Utah the reddish sandstone visuals and natural arches of Zion National Park are second to none. On any given hike you can follow paths of natives and pioneers centuries old. The sandstone cliffs of the park have gained worldwide acclaim for their cream, pink and red color that accent the blue skies of Utah splendidly. With a rich history of human history over 12,000 years old the first people of Zion tracked mammoth, giant sloth, and camel across southern Utah.

The park has more than a 1,000 species of plants ranging from tall, graceful cottonwoods growing along the river to towering pines and firs shading the higher elevations
