Zion National Park
The road from Monument Valley to Zion NP was a real surprise, it was suggested by a man we met in Sedona , in his words he said “You can take the High Rd or the Low Rd , may I suggest the Low Rd ” How right he was .
These wonderful Vermillion Cliffs line the edge of the road for quite a long way , this picture above is taken from a view point on the drive . The old Navajo Bridge crosses the Colorado River here . This area is called Lees Ferry and its where you start your rafting trip through the Grand Canyon .
The views on the drive were amazing as you had prairie’s on one side and cliffs on the other , it is also the way you would come to view the Grand Canyon from the northern end but it’s closed at the moment due to snow .
We eventually arrived out our next destination , Zion Lodge which is up in the Zion Canyon of the National Park
We are staying in one of these cute little cabins in the woods ,sharing our surrounds with the wildlife .
Tomorrow we will explore what Zion has to offer .
