I’d like to tell you about my trip to Zion National Park.
If Tim Burton were to design a national park, Zion would be it. It was truly incredible… as if I were an ant who fell into a bowl of orange and red cake batter, its layers surrounding me in surreal rocky formations. I’ve never seen anything like it. I hiked through “The Narrows” of the canyons on a path which unavoidably winds through the river of which the narrow canyon cliffs enclose. How these formations formed I don’t know. They are made of compressed rock-like sand, formed by the wind and water that once carved these designs.
It’s like being on another planet, and we all wish we could do that sometimes…
I certainly think this is one park everyone should see.
