|Cliffs (Zion) - Utah 2012|
The sheer number of people wanting to visit Utah's national parks - even in the (supposedly) off-season of October - was somewhat confounding. Showing up around noon at Zion National Park is just not going to work: even to check out the Visitor Center required taking a shuttle from outside the park. (Of course, the main scenic road through Zion is accessible by shuttle only. But Mike had known that in advance.)
Maybe the park boundaries could have been larger from the beginning? Probably not.
So, a drive-though, parking at a few pull-offs, checking out the vistas and the cliffs. Might be interesting to plan a winter visit.
