National Parks Series: Zion National Park, UT
Utah’s first national park, “[t}he geologic formations of Zion-formed over approximately 250 million years- record periods of time when this area was covered by a shallow sea; when huge, sluggish rivers, bordered by swamplands, meandered across the landscape; and when a vast desert-perhaps the largest on the planet-covered the region. The sand dunes of this desert are now Zion’s famous sculpted and colorful 2,000 foot cliffs.” (nps.gov)
