Welcome to Zion

When you first drive into Zion National Park you're in awe at how HUGE all the mountains of red are...and you've only just begun. To get into the "main part" of the park you have to drive toward this-- which leads to a tunnel that had to be dug out of this rock. It's completely dark inside except for--
a few of these natural "windows" which they created out of the stone which gives you an amazing view and taste of what you're going to be seeing.

Of course pictures don't do this landscape justice--but see more by clicking on these pics. Next up is our hike at great heights...crazy.
