Court of the Patriarchs - Zion National Park

The Court of the Patriarchs in Zion National Park near Springdale, Utah, are sandstone cliffs named for three towering figures of the Old Testament. They hold court over Birch Creek Canyon and that section of the Virgin River. In 1916 Frederick Vining Fisher, a Methodist minister, gave the religious names to the peaks.

 

On the left you can see Abraham Peak (6890 ft; 2101m), in the center you’ll find Isaac Peak (6825 ft; 2081m) and on the right, almost hidden behind Mount Moroni (5690ft; 1734m), is Jacob Peak (6831 ft; 2083m).
