Dual colored mountain viewed from the Zion Terrace Road
We stopped at Zion in August 2010 as part of our Back-to-School tour. I've been to Zion many times before but figured since we were so close we should stop by. In a way that was a bad choice - the main road that bisects the park was undergoing major construction this year so there were a lot of traffic delays. The park was absolutely packed with people and it was extremely hot - about 100 degrees - so it wasn't conducive for hiking. Instead we opted for some short strolls and ended up having a very nice day.
