In the southwest region of Utah is the famous Zion National Park, one of the most beautiful nature parks in the USA.
Despite, by American standards, its relatively small dimensions of 600 square kilometres, the region consists of numerous diverse vegetation zones.
Several of the park’s archaeological sites indicate that man inhabited this region more than 2,000 years ago. It is believed that the earliest prehistoric inhabitants here were the legendary Anasazi Indians followed by the Paiute Tribe.
At the bottom of various canyons and close to the nearby Virgin River, there are Fremont poplars, ash-leafed maple and willows, but the trees are always overshadowed by the park’s spectacular rock formations.
From the natural subtlety of its landscape to the monumental spectacle of its massive rock formations, the Zion National Park contains an abundance of remarkable and truly memorable features.
