Zion National Park Zion National Park—one of the most inti-


mate and favorite of visitors from all over the world, is best experienced from the bottom up! In sheer magnitude and color, it is very likely one of the most awe-inspiring National Parks in the world. Zion hosts over 2.5 million visitors per year. Elevations in the canyon range from 4,000


feet at the valley floor to nearly 9,000 feet at the highest point. Rock climbers and hiking enthu- siasts from around the world come here to ex- perience the vertical climbs and zigzagging trails which take you to pinnacles, domes, arches and spires. Hanging gardens, canyon waterfalls and natural stain lined canyon walls create a tropical paradise in the middle of an arid desert climate. The Zion Canyon offers many trails ranging


from short “leg-stretcher” walks to strenuous adventures. The short hike to Weeping Rock is not to be missed and for those high perfor- mance golfer/hikers, the amazing hike to the top of Angel’s Landing is something you won’t soon forget. And speaking of forget—take along the camera on this one! The photographer—pro- fessional or amateur—will find as many “great shots” in the canyon as on the golf course. The variety of habitats in Zion Canyon make for ex- cellent photo ops with the wildflower walks in the spring and brilliant fall leaves in the autumn.


Springdale The unique and eclectic town of Springdale


welcomes you to Zion National Park. Walk the tree lined streets to enjoy the many unique eat- eries, stunning artist galleries, interesting rock shops and fun souvenir stores. Throw a little education into the mix by visiting the Zion Can- yon Giant Screen Theater that features “Trea- sures of the Gods”, a 40 minute IMAX film of the history of Zion.


The summer weekends are often filled with


high energy as concerts are held in the O.C. Tanner Amphitheater—a magnificent outdoor stage in a colorful rock canyon. Many events and festivals that you may en-


joy are held throughout the year in Springdale. Visit the calendar at www.utahstgeorge.com to find out what events are being held during your stay to the Red Rock Golf Trail country. A wide variety of dining is available from


steaks to Mexican to Oriental food—and don’t miss Springdale’s first micro-brewery at the Majestic View Lodge Restaurant and Sa- loon for a taste of Hop Valley IPA, Virgin Stout or Springdale Ale!


Snow Canyon State Park One of the hidden treasures of the area is


this State Park. Snow Canyon, named for one of the early settlers of the region rarely sees snow, but rather is a geological wonder of red and white sandstone. Years of erosion have left arches and towers, ancient volcanoes have add- ed a layer of black lava—for some added drama. The sand dunes, lava caves and rock arches add magnificence to the hiking and biking trails that are easily accessible from the parking lots. For a different sightseeing experience, take a guided horseback tour through a red rock, red sand, black lava wonderland!
