Kolob Canyons Utah

Over Labor Day weekend we took a trip to Utah. Our destination was Bryce Canyon National Park. On our way to Bryce we stopped at a couple of places along the way. I will begin my blog posts with those places we stopped at briefly. This is just a "quick and dirty" post to get you warmed of for things to come. Kolob Canyons is a park of Zion National Park. It appeared to be the much less traveled section of Zion. You can read a bit about the area by clicking this highlighted link and you can learn a bit about how to drive there here The mountains have rich color and the vegetation was plush. There are many hiking trails. The trail we walked was empty except for one couple we passed. Much different than the more popular main area of Zion that always has people in it, just varying amounts at different times. Without further ado, lets get on to the photos of this area. You can't see it from the entrance to Kolob Canyons but within a very brief drive you'll turn a corner and see these majestic peaks around you. From hwy 15 you'd never know these are such a short distance away.

Of course I have many more photos of this area in a gallery you may view at this link: Kolob Canyons

  1. I really want to go here. We did see parts of Zion last November, but didn't get a chance to get out here. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the pictures and hearing more about the trip.
