Towering vertical walls of colorful sedimentary rock surround you relaying simultaneously contradictory feelings of intimacy and overwhelming grandeur. For five seasons I had the privilege of serving as a ranger-naturalist, interpreting for the public the story behind the stunning beauty of Zion National Park. This eBook (illustrated with 40 wilderness images) allows you to experience a vicarious journey through one of America's truly great national parks. If contemplating a visit to Zion, print out Zion National Park, An Interpretive Guide and reference it as you explore the park. Mile markers throughout the eBook show places to stop with descriptions of the park’s human and natural history and also provide information on short and long hiking trails found along the way. Those who take the time to truly explore Zion can find that within and around this park there exists a truly remarkable diversity - in terms of both natural environments and in terms of opportunities for wilderness experience. Whether observing desert wildflowers at the lower elevations, or hiking among the Douglas-firs and quaking aspens of the high country; whether being exhilarated by the wide-open vistas from the rim of a wilderness plateau or being overwhelmed by the towering walls of a claustrophobic backcountry canyon, it is possible to spend a lifetime here and never tire of the variety and diversity and beauty of this incredible national park.
