Hidden Zion: Exploring a Secret Sandstone Wonderland in Zion National Park in UT
Earlier this fall Chyna and I took a road trip south and west to visit family in Las Vegas. Along the way we stopped in Utah to spend a few days camping and hiking in Zion National Park, a desert favorite of mine. My goal was to find a spot off the beaten path, in a park so busy was that even possible? Lots of research had me stumbling upon a spot in the park's less visited Kolob Terrace region. In order to retain its relative secrecy I will not get too specific on the details of where this place is. A bit of research and I'm sure you could find it yourself. Anyway, this spot was truly a sandstone wonderland! Spires and hoodoos were peppered among stands of ponderosa pines and blooming yucca with far reaching views of the deep remote canyons of Zion's interior wilderness. I saw nobody the entire time even when I returned to my car. The silence was so silent it was deafening yet oddly comforting. I had accomplished what I had set out to do, see Zion in all it's wild glory sans humans. Take a look at the photos from that day below.
