This is the second part of our visit to Zion National Park. In a previous blog, I wrote about our hiking in Zion. After visiting Bryce Canyon we headed back to Vegas via Zion National Park.
Our trip went like this:
Drive from Las Vegas to Zion
Drive from Zion to Cedar City (spent the night)
Drive to Bryce Canyon in the morning.
Drive to Zion in the afternoon
Head back to Las Vegas
Below is a map of our trip.
We entered the park on the Eastern entrance. There are size restrictions on larger vehicles as the highway passes through two tunnels.
If you don't care much for hiking or taking a shuttle, the Zion-Mt Carmel highway is a great way to see the park. Be ready to pull over and have your camera ready to take photos of the amazing canyons!
The larger of the two tunnels is over one mile long! There are no lights in the tunnel so it's extremely dark except the small windows cut out in the rock!
The Mt. Carmel - Zion Highway was placed on the National Register of Places in 1987. Anyone who drives this highway will easily see why!

I like to run, take pictures and write. I've combined all three in this blog.
