We haven’t had any cool covers to share lately, but this one is! This was produced by the Zion Natural History Association.
You might recognize Janine out front trying to look relaxed (it was a long ways down) on the amazing Hidden Canyon Trail. Parts of this trail are literally carved into the side of the cliffs with just a chain bolted to the wall for support – notice the four people in the background. It is pretty cool the Park Service even allows a trail like this.
But Zion has lots of awesome trails like this. The Angel’s Landing Trail climbs way above the valley floor and then traverses along a narrow, very exposed ridge, with again, just a chain for protection. Or the Zion Narrows hike which leads up a narrow canyon with 1,500 foot high walls and just enough room in the bottom for a river. The Subway is another amazing hike – after flipping through this book I’m thinking we might just have to add Zion into our Fall travels!
This looks like a great book – lots of photos, maps and charts to go along with the wealth of information. I don’t see it on Amazon have a feeling this book is only available in the Zion National Park Visitor Center, but it is definitely worth picking up.
