Zion National Park: a National Treasure

Among the U.S. National Parks, Zion stands out as unique. In its deep and long sandstone canyons you can enjoy a great diversity of flora and fauna.

It is over half a mile in depth and fifteen miles long; with the North Fork of the Virgin River winding through it reveals a wonderland of four main types of zones: desert; riparian, coniferous forest and woodland. The plants range from the common yucca, cactus to the datura, sagebrush cottonwood, juniper and pine; mountain lions, mule deer, golden eaglesCalifornia condors and bighorn sheep share the diversity of Zion National Park.
