Canyons..Mt. Zion and Grand

It’s been nearly a week since our last post, we’ve been very busy in Utah and Arizona.  After a night in Pahrump, NV we wanted to see Hoover Damn.  We drove through Las Vegas and found that the traffic to the bridge was backed up for miles.  So we skipped the dam and just headed up to Utah to prepare to visit Mt. Zion National park.  We stayed over night in one of Utah’s state parks, Sand Hollow.  It boasted a large reservoir with red sand beaches.  It was one of the nicest state parks we’ve seen on the trip so far. image041

The next day we drove into Mt. Zion National park.  We had planned on 0nly driving through and going on to Bryce Canyon, but Zion was so beautiful we decided to stay the night.  We parked the RV and the dogs and took off to enjoy the park.  We rode the shuttle into the Canyon and enjoyed all the stops.  We didn’t have time (or the gear) to hike the 2.5 miles up the canyon in the water, but we want to come back someday and stay longer.
