Zion National Park unveils its eight layers of stonework, displaying what has taken two-hundred-million years to carve and mould. This extravagant corner of Utah is a masterwork of soaring cliffs, deep red canyons, mesas, buttes and massive monoliths. Zion's renown is due to more than exquisiteness, it can also boast on its geology, mountaineering, backpacking and some of the best picturesque drives anywhere. In the centre is Mt. Carmel Jct., situated at the east side of the park and only 60-miles from Bryce Canyon, 45-miles from Cedar Breaks, 9-miles from an doorway to the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, 85-miles from Grand Canyon and 11-miles from the Coral Pink Sand Dunes.
