a NEW majestic discovery

kolob

Hi all!  Well we’ve been away to Zion National Park for the last three days and had a good time hiking some NEW trails and visiting extended family that we haven’t seen for many, many years.   I’ll post some pics from some of our hikes later, but today I’ve got to tell you of our NEW majestic discovery.  There’s a very unassuming exit on Interstate 15 in Southern Utah that says ‘Kolob Canyon – Scenic Drive’.  We’ve passed by that exit sooooooo many times!!!  Here is the view from the freeway:

Yeah, now you know why we’ve never stopped, right!?!  BUT if you travel just a couple of miles west of Interstate 15, you’d have the view of the top photo….and if you actually take the scenic drive, here’s just one of the views of the very majestic canyon walls you’d see:

Now not all ‘scenic drives’ are created equal.  But…when you’re in Southern Utah, be sure to take the Kolob Canyon scenic drive.  It’s only five miles out of your way and TOTALLY worth the effort!  It’s actually part of Zion National Park, but on the very north end and not accessible through the main park.

Have a great day!  Do or Learn something NEW!

  2. We just went to Zion National Park for the first time in April and LOVED it. It was also our first time staying in St. George. The scenic drive looks pretty great.
