Zion National Park Photo Journal

Our first stop on our National Park to Park Highway trip was Zion National Park. We chose Zion to start Stage 1 of our National Park to Park Highway tour because we’re already familiar with it and hoped that would make it an easy introduction to full time camping. 
Only camping by definition is not easy. 
While I wouldn’t count this Zion trip a resounding success (more on that later) I will say that we had fun. After biking the Pa’rus Trail and swimming in the Virgin river all day Tuesday, Big E said “This is one of the best days of my life!” So obviously we did something right. 
Enjoy these images of Zion National Park as the first entry of my National Park to Park Highway Photo Journal series.
