Zion is the last national park we visit on our Rocky Mountains National Parks road trip, and just as we begin to think “do we want to see another canyon?” – we enter Zion along the Zion-Mt Carmel Highway (part of Hwy 9) – and the views are spectacular!
There are plenty of pullovers along this road and you will find yourself using them all.
Bryce Canyon National Park is one of our favourite national parks in the USA. Famous for its hoodoos (columns of eroded sandstone), we are wowed by its unique beauty. It has the largest collection of hoodoos in the world.
Bryce Canyon is at the top of The Grand Staircase – a series of cliffs and terraces that stretch from southern Utah to the Grand Canyon.
To experience Arches National Park the best place to start is at the Visitor Center at the entrance to the park. Pick up a map/brochure for the park and have a chat to one of the Rangers for advice on what to see in the time you have.
